U.S. Provides Humanitarian Assistance to India
Date:6/20/2008

NEW DELHI, India, June 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The United States has provided $50,000 in humanitarian assistance to the non-governmental organization Save the Children to assist people affected by the food shortages in Mizoram's Saiha district of India.

Shortages have emerged in recent months because the flowering of bamboo in the area has resulted in rapidly growing rat infestations in crop-growing areas. With funds provided by the United States, Save the Children will assist poor families affected by crop losses. The current food shortages have led to growing health concerns, especially for women and children. During his conversation with Mizoram Chief Minister Pu Zoramthanga, U.S. Consul General in Kolkata, Henry Jardine, said that the support "reflects the U.S. Government's great concern and sympathy for the people of Mizoram during this difficult time."

The American people, through the U.S. Agency for International Development, have provided economic and humanitarian assistance worldwide for nearly 50 years.
