Rabat – Upon High instructions of HM King Mohammed VI, Morocco will provide a US$ 1 million emergency humanitarian aid to flood-hit Paraguay, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation said Friday.
This decision is part of Morocco’s commitment in favor of South-South cooperation, as well as it shared, permanent and active solidarity with the region’s countries, the ministry underlined in a statement.
It is also meant to contribute to alleviating the difficult conditions experienced by some friendly Paraguayan population, the statement added.
According to Paraguay’s National Emergency Secretariat (SEN) around 13,000 families are affected by flooding, most of them from the poor Los Ba?ados areas of the city of Asunci?n, located close to the river.
