Pope Francis on February 4, 2018, said, “I want to assure my closeness to the populations of Madagascar, recently affected by a strong cyclone, which caused victims, displaced and enormous damages. May the Lord comfort and sustain them.”

His expression of solidarity came after the Angelus, prayed in St. Peter’s Square with a crowd estimated at 20,000.
