The UAE has sent aid to people affected by flash flooding in Sudan.

The consignment includes 15 metric tons of food, such as rice, flour, and sugar, as well as 15 metric tons of medical supplies and around 10,000 tents.

According to a statement published by the UAE Wam news agency, the aid contained emergency medical supplies, first aid for the injured, and material for personal care.

Items such as rice, flour, sugar, powdered milk, tea, and lentils were also included.

Sheikh Mohamed ordered the delivery of Dh25 million in humanitarian relief to Sudan on August 20 to help the thousands of people impacted by the flooding.

More than 140,000 people in numerous regions will receive aid packages that are now being transported to Khartoum under the watchful eye of the Red Crescent Authority.

After the floods, six states in Sudan declared a state of emergency.

On Saturday, officials in Khartoum reported 89 deaths and 40 injuries due to the flooding. They said that 23,081 houses had been destroyed and another 33,999 were damaged. BKM/ Expat Media
