RIYADH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center will provide humanitarian aid worth $100 million to the Sudanese people, Saudi Press Agency reported on Sunday.
In a directive issued by Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a charity campaign would also be organised through the “Sahem” platform to raise funds.
Supervisor General of KSrelief Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah said the assistance provided is a result of the Saudi government’s keenness to stand by the Sudanese people and mitigate the effects of the difficult crisis in their country.
Relief and humanitarian and medical aid will be provided to the displaced in Sudan as part of the initiative which comes as an extension of the humanitarian role of Saudi Arabia in standing with the needy, Al-Rabeeah said.
The UN’s top humanitarian official, Martin Griffiths, arrived in Saudi Arabia on Sunday for ceasefire talks between Sudan’s warring generals.
Gun battles and air strikes continued to flare in the Sudanese capital at the start of a fourth week of fighting.
