UAE delivers more aid to flood-hit Sudan


Field teams from the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) have distributed food baskets and shelter materials to families affected by torrential rains and floods that struck several states in Sudan.

The aid is set to benefit 3,500 people in two villages in the White Nile State.

The ERC teams defied challenges to ferry food assistance to the hard-to-reach villages.

The humanitarian assistance is part of the UAE's continuing air bridge to provide relief to flood-hit Sudan.

In statements to Emirates News Agency (WAM), beneficiaries expressed their thanks and gratitude to the UAE for its assistance.
