Khartoum – In collaboration with the Sudanese Red Crescent and a number of volunteers, King Salman Humanitarian Aid & Relief Center distributed aid provided by the Center to people who live in Shambat Bahri areas which are affected by floods.

The aid is to assist the Sudanese government containing the disaster. It contained food baskets, tents, blankets, mosquito nets, and devices for suction and pesticides.

Around 300 houses were destroyed in Shambad Bahri, and 270 in al-Soubi Triangle.

Advisor at the Royal Court, General Supervisor of King Salman Humanitarian Aid & Relief Center, Abdullah bin Abdulaziz al-Rabiah said that this aid comes as implementation of orders by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud to help the citizens of brotherly country Sudan who suffered due to the floods.

Rabiah pointed out that a plan has been advised with the Sudanese Crescent to distribute aids to the Neishfaa Mabdi and Salha Oum Darman areas as well.

The aids ordered by King Salman, arrived to Khartoum Airport two days earlier carrying a two tons’ cargo of food supplies and sheltering aids.
