Bank Commits $250 Million for Tsunam i-Affected Countries

The Bank will make available US$250 million as its initial contribution for
emergency reconstruction in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake and
tsunami that killed more than 155,000 people and left hundreds of thousands
homeless across Asia and eastern Africa. The funds can be made available
quickly from existing programs, and will include the provision of emergency
credits and grants to respond to the immediate needs in the countries hit by
this disaster. The amount will cover the next six months while further
financing for longer-term reconstruction needs is identified.
