The organization reported on Saturday that the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) provided 400 tents and house aid packages to support the people affected by the destructive floods in Sudan. Volunteers also distributed food packages to people in the areas affected by the flood.
According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), more than 650,000 people in 17 from 18 states of Sudan have been affected. Indeed, UNFPA declared in a report on Friday that thousands were replaced when more than over 110,000 houses were damaged.
KSrelief wrote on Twitter: KSrelief continues to support the victims of the floods in Sudan with the distribution of 400 tents and shelter aid, in addition to nutrition and food supply to multiples areas. According to the Saudi Press Agency (SPA), in the governorates of al-Jazira and the Nile states, KSrelief handed 200 tents and shelter bags, and also food baskets. This operation of support comes as part of Saudi Arabia’s continuous efforts to help the Sudanese people during this time, in what SPA declared.
In the same context, a senior Sudanese humanitarian official praised last week the Kingdom for its efforts to support victims of the recent floods in the country, while General-Director of Sudan’s National Medical Supplies Fund, Afaf al-Nahas, related that the medical supplies of the Kingdom were important for the humanitarian response and could also help the Ministry of Health to battle against the coronavirus diseases.
It should be noted that at the start of September, KSrelief had handed hundreds of boxes of assistance to people in Khartoum, including 105 tons of medical materials and equipment.
