This brought the Danish contribution to over $33 million making the country the single biggest contributor to the fund. The fund is managed by the African Development Bank.

Speaking at the contribution signing ceremony, Erik Brogger Rasmussen, the Danish Ambassador to Zimbabwe said: "Denmark wants to help rehabilitate the infrastructure in Zimbabwe and would continue to do so if the projects are well managed and produce tangible results." He said people should have the right to water which provides them with a descent life.

The money would boost coffers of the ZIMFUND created to improve the electricity and water and sanitation infrastructure in the country.
