Description

Between July 2011 and mid-2012, a severe drought affected the entire East African region, including Djibouti. On 9 and 16 November 2011, the Chinese Ambassador and the Djibouti Minister of Foreign Affairs and INternational Cooperation signed an exchange of letters in which China pledged to donate 1,720 cartons of medicines and vitamins to drought-stricken areas in Djibouti. This donation was officially delivered on 5 August 2012 to the Djibouti Secretary-General of the Ministry of Health. The 1,720 cartons carried streptomycin, an anti-TB drug and vitamin B complex.
