October 15 (SeeNews) - Sweden's International Development Agency (SIDA) has granted 1.5 million euro ($2.1 million) to help drought victims in Moldova, the country's Agriculture Ministry said on Monday.
Some 84% of Moldova's agricultural lands have been affected by this year's drought. Losses from damaged cereal crops alone are estimated at nearly 300 million euro. Worst hit by the drought were households in the rural areas, for which agriculture is the main means of living.
"Moldovan Agriculture Minister Anatolie Gorodenco […] expressed gratitude to SIDA for its significant contribution of 1.5 million euro in assistance under a project for urgent and technical assistance to overcome the drought consequences in Moldova," the ministry said in a statement.
The EU, World Bank, the UN and other international organisations have granted financial aid for Moldova's drought victims.
