Qatar is donating $30m to help people in Texas recover from Hurricane Harvey, its ambassador said.

This is apparently the largest contribution from a foreign government to assist the devastated stretches of the Texas coast. Doha pledged the funds through the newly created Qatar Harvey Fund, which Ambassador Meshal bin Hamad Al Thani said would work with Texas Governor Greg Abbott, local organisations and other Texas officials. The funds will be used “to help rebuild communities” affected by flooding.
