Your Majesty and Hon Prime Minister,


When we learnt some time in 2012 about the Emergency Food Crisis in Lesotho, our Government, in solidarity with the Government of the Kingdom and its people, did not hesitate to extend humanitarian support to the tune of 180 million rand.


Our Government, through the World Food Programme, is partnering with the Government of Lesotho to mitigate the impact of the food crisis in the Kingdom.
In this regard, the WFP with our support seeks to assist about 227 thousand children and mothers who are malnourished and food insecure. We are happy with the progress made thus far in the roll-out of this Project.


Your Majesty and Hon Prime Minister,

"Khotso, Pula, Nala".


I thank you.

Republic of South Africa
