Following the violent cyclone that struck Myanmar, displacing more than 900,000 people and leaving many dead, France offers its condolences to the bereaved, assures the families of those who have disappeared that they are in our thoughts, and offers its absolute solidarity to all those who were injured or suffered damage.
France is mobilizing its efforts to provide assistance to the people affected by this cyclone.
France has decided to provide exceptional support to humanitarian organizations that operate locally to help them strengthen their efforts on the ground to provide emergency shelters and access to drinking water, for which there is a substantial need. We stand ready to tailor our response to shifting needs. France reiterates its commitment to providing humanitarian aid securely and without hindrance to all vulnerable populations, as well as its solidarity with the people of Myanmar.
