Qatar has sent urgent relief aid to flood-hit Sudan through Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD), in partnership with strategic partners, such as Qatar Charity and the Qatar Red Crescent Society.
QFFD said in a statement that the aid comes as a continuation of the relief and development support provided by Qatar in Sudan.
Qatar’s aid includes food baskets, tents, and other forms of relief which has so far benefited 8,000 people.
On September 7, Qatar provided aid to 139 families in Khartoum and Omdurman.
The aid provided included food and non-food items.
Food and non-food items are currently being distributed to a thousand displaced families and to those affected by the floods.
Two batches of humanitarian aid shipments have arrived, sent by Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) in co-operation with the Turkish Red Crescent Society, containing 12.5 tonnes of medical materials and devices that will enable hospitals and quarantine centres to treat those infected with the coronavirus.
QRCS also delivered medical aid to support Ibrahim Malik Teaching Hospital in co-operation with the Sudanese Red Crescent in Khartoum.
Qatar will send urgent relief aid which included about 42.5 tonnes of food and non-food items, tents and medicines.
Qatar, represented by QFFD and the strategic partners of Qatari charitable institutions, continues to support Sudan through urgent relief aid and development projects, within the framework of the essential and important role that Qatar plays to help the Sudan successfully overcome this humanitarian crisis and alleviate the severity of the disaster.
QFFD provided last September urgent relief assistance to the flood victims in Sudan, where it sent about 124 tonnes of relief materials and medicine to the affected areas.
