KUWAIT: KRCS CONTINUES DISTRIBUTION OF AID TO FLOOD-STRICKEN PEOPLE

KHARTOUM — Kuwait Red Crescent Society (KRCS) began Sunday distributing relief aid for victims of floods that hit Sudan during the current rainy season with an unprecedented record rate.

Head of the KRCS’ delegation Ahmed Abdullah Al-Faqaan told Kuwait News Agency (KUNA) that the distribution started from the suburb of Suba in east of the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, as one of the affected areas where 300 families have benefited from such aid.

He said the relief supplies included blankets, bed sheets, mattresses and mosquito nets, indicating that the distribution operations will continue to other regions affected by the floods in cooperation with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society.

He expressed hope that aid would contribute to alleviating the suffering of all needy people as a result of this natural disaster in Sudan.

Two months of torrential rain have killed more than 76 people in Sudan, and more rain is forecast. More than 160,000 people have been affected and 14,000 houses destroyed.
