The Canadian government has donated the sum of $70 million, about N11.49 billion to the drought-troubled East Africa countries.
Minister for International Co-operation, Canada, Ms Bev Oda, disclosed this at a conference on food security in Montreal, at the weekend, reports CBCNews.
“Canadians have once again demonstrated their compassion and generosity by continuing to support the people of East Africa suffering from this catastrophic drought,” Oda said.
She also said that the Canadian government is proud to partner with her citizens to help those affected by the drought.
“We continue to work with partners on ground to ensure Canadian aid is helping those who need it the most, including women and children” she said.
