[Minister Ford] express my condolences for the civilians who have lost their lives or been displaced following recent floods in The Gambia. The UK is a major financial contributor to the UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) Team, which provides emergency assistance for sudden on-set emergencies, and is the third largest donor to the UN Central Emergency Response Fund, which most recently allocated $1 million to provide humanitarian assistance to The Gambia. The UK is working closely with UNDAC and like-minded partners to support the Government of The Gambia's humanitarian response to the crisis.
