Urgent relief aid floods sudan

In the implementation of the directives of H.H. the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, an urgent relief aid shipment from Qatar left for the sisterly Republic of Sudan to support the relief efforts made by Sudan due to the floods and torrential rains that occurred in different parts of Sudanese states.

Qatar Fund for Development, in cooperation with the Qatari Amiri Air Force, transferred this aid through the Permanent Committee for Rescue, Relief and Humanitarian Aid in the afflicted areas in brotherly and friendly countries, in coordination with the designated authorities to deliver the aid to those affected.

Urgent relief aid from QFFD in cooperation with Qatar Amiri Air Force aircraft arrived in the Republic of Sudan. The shipment contained 62 tons of food aid and 600 tents to support families affected by the floods.

H.E. Ambassador of the State of Qatar to Sudan Abdulrahman bin Ali Al Kubaisi said that the aid includes foodstuffs that will be directed to the affected people in the state of Al Jazirah in central Sudan, while tents and shelter supplies will be distributed to the affected families in the states of the River Nile and Al Jazirah through the technical field teams of Qatar Charity.
