Big ‘Brother’ Nigeria donates $500,000 to Malawi

The federal government has donated 30,000 tonnes of drugs, medical equipment, insecticide treated nets and $500,000 to the Republic of Malawi.

In March, Malawi was hit by Cyclone Idai which caused the death of at least 60 persons and destroyed not less than 86,000 houses and public infrastructure.

On Monday, Geoffrey Onyeama, minister of foreign affairs, led a delegation to Lilongwe, capital of the country.

He handed over the relief materials to Nicholas Dausi, the minister of homeland security and disaster management affairs of the Republic of Malawi.

Onyeama said Nigeria had a special duty and responsibility to be a “big brother” in Africa, adding that any tragedy or misfortune that befalls any African country also affects Nigeria.

The minister also extended the sympathy of Buhari to the people of the country.

“We share this burden and the loss with you in this country, “Onyeama said.
