The World Bank will extend more than half-a-billion dollars in grants for cyclone-ravaged southern African countries.

A total of up to 545 million US dollar will be disbursed to Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Malawi - the three countries hit by Cyclone Idai in March.

World Bank's president David Malpass made the announcement as he concluded his visit to Mozambique, the worst affected country.

Cyclone Idai devastated the port city of Beira and its surrounding areas when it hit on March 14, killing more than 600 people.

Weeks later a fresh massive storm, Cyclone Kenneth, lashed the northern coastal regions of Mozambique which killed 41 people.

Mozambique, which received 350 million US dollar from the total aid, will use the funds to rebuild water supply systems and damaged public infrastructure.

Malawi, will get 120 million US dollar while Zimbabwe will receive 75 million US dollar for social welfare programmes for cyclone victims.
