RIYADH: Two aircraft carrying shelter, food and medical aid left Riyadh on Sunday for flood-stricken Sudan. The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) airlift is being directed by a specialized team that will supervise the distribution process. More than 60 people are believed to have died in flash flooding that left almost 200,000 people homeless. At least 37,000 homes in the country have been destroyed or damaged, according to the UN.
Last month, Saudi Arabia delivered 260 tons of dates to the UN World Food Program (WFP) for distribution to needy people in Honduras.
Officials in Tegucigalpa, the capital of the Latin American country, praised the assistance offered by KSRelief.
As part of the WFP, the center also delivered 260 tons of dates to Nicaragua.
Also, the center launched a project to build and repair agricultural terraces in the Helmeen district in LuHajj governorate in Yemen.
