The Samoan government has donated nearly 4,000 US dollars to the Cook Islands government as a contribution towards the cyclone recovery programmes.

The Prime minister, Jim Marurai, says he is grateful for Samoa's generosity, which has overwhelmed the government and people of the Cook Islands.

The Cook Islands News says government ministries are holding the funds while decision are made over how they will be used.
