At least 50 people are known to have died in the disaster, and government officials fear the death toll may rise as clean-up begins. Hundreds of thousands of people have been affected by the flooding, including several thousand who have been forced to flee their homes.
The donation by Pope Francis comes in addition to the many contributions of the local church and other charitable organizations.
Catholic relief organisations have been active in providing aid since the disaster began.
