Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State, Washington, DC
April 11, 2011

On behalf of President Obama and the people of the United States, I send our sincere condolences and sympathy to the people of Namibia for the loss of life and damage caused by the flooding in northern Namibia. The U.S. Embassy in Windhoek has offered immediate disaster relief assistance to help provide essential items to those who have been affected by the floods. The United States also has sent disaster response and food security experts to the affected regions to help assess the current situation, and we are working closely with the Namibian Government to provide additional help if needed...Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Namibia during this difficult time.
