Muslim World league provides timely relief to Pakistan flood victims

  • Aid from Muslim World League is an extension of humanitarian role played by Kingdom, Saudi envoy says
  • Move follows Al-Malki’s visit to Neelum Valley in Pakistan-administered Kashmir in July this year

ISLAMABAD: As part of efforts to facilitate flood victims in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, The World Relief, Care and Development group – an extension of the Makkah-based Muslim World League (MWL) – launched an emergency program this week, the Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported on Tuesday.
During the launch ceremony of the program held on Monday, Ambassador of Saudi Arabia to Pakistan, Nawaf bin Said Al-Malki said, “This program is an extension of the humanitarian role played by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in assisting needy countries and people, including Pakistan,” according to SPA.
On July 20, Al-Malki visited Pakistan’s Neelum valley after devastating floods killed more than 30 people in the northernmost region of Pakistan-administered Kashmir.
He was accompanied by a team from the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) that reviewed the urgent requirements on-ground for the area.
At least 109 people were killed and 86 others injured in separate rain-related accidents across Pakistan in July this year, the country’s National Disaster Management Authority said in its advisory released on August 2.
