“The government responded very quickly on the first day of emergency, helped search and rescue operations, also provided food assistance and some other items to those people who have been displaced. The United Nations has been in contact and in support of the government from day one of this crisis and emergency. And we have internally been also coordinating our joint efforts to support the response to the people affected by this crisis. We are ready to support the government in any assessments that are going to take place, and we understand they will be happening very soon.”

“And equally, some UN agencies are already mobilizing some of their existing resources to support regions affected by certain relief items. Obviously, Tanzania, not being a humanitarian operation country, We don't have much on the spot, but UN agencies are really trying to see what could be contributed. And as I said, some have already been providing some food, some non-food items. We hope that we will be able to provide more as the situation evolves and we are able to support the government with the assessment and with its findings.”
