Qatar Fund for Development, in cooperation with the Qatar Amiri Air Force, sent 45 tons of food aid baskets to assist 750 affected families in the Somaliland region. This is to address the difficult conditions as a result of drought, in addition to the fire that erupted in the main market of the capital Hargeisa.
H.E. Director General of Qatar Fund for Development Khalifa Al Kuwari said: "This urgent assistance comes to play an important role in alleviating the severity of this humanitarian disaster for the affected and most needy people in the Somaliland region, especially after the fire that erupted in the main market of the capital Hargeisa recently, which affected in an unprecedented way the food security of the region, in addition to the drought that hit the region."
"Although these aids are urgent relief in their nature, they play an important role in alleviating the severity of the humanitarian and development catastrophe. Where they help in enhancing the lives of the affected people and ensure a decent life for them. They also play a role in promoting the second goal of the sustainable development goals relating to hunger," he added.
Last March, Qatar Fund for Development and Qatar Charity sent 45 tons of food baskets to tackle the drought in Somalia, where the aid was sent in cooperation with the Qatar Amiri Air Force.
