The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) continued on Thursday its mission to deliver aid packages to the flood victims in Sudan.
KSrelief volunteers delivered hundreds of boxes of aid to people in Khartoum, where authorities last week declared a three-month state of emergency.
“King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief), in collaboration with Egtinam Foundation for Human Development, distributed 1,000 boxes of dates yesterday to those affected by floods in the East Nile region of Khartoum, Sudan,” the organization said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Some 6,000 people benefitted from the food assistance, which is part of a larger project to help flood victims throughout the country,” it added.
At least 100 people have died and around 85,000 others have been internally displaced by the floods.
More than half a million people have been affected in 17 of the 18 Sudanese states, according to authorities.
