Lilongwe, January 26, 2016 (MaraviPost): The Arab Republic of Egypt through the Egyptian Agency of Partnership and Development (EAPD) has donated about K 19.5 million in a humanitarian gesture to help Malawi cope with the impending food crisis.



The donation comes as 17 per cent of the population (around 2.8 million) face severe food shortage in the lean period (October 2015 to March 2016) following prolonged dry spells and flooding in some parts of the country that led to a decline in production of maize and other food crops.



Egyptian Ambassador to Malawi, Maher El-Adawy said the donation is aimed at boosting food supplies distributed by the Department of Disaster and Management Affairs (DoDMA) to the people affected.      Egypt Donates K 19.5 million to help Malawi cope with impending food shortages: Egypt Donates K 19.5 million to help Malawi cope with impending food shortages
