HH the Amir donates QR50 million to relief campaign for Sudanese flood victims
Qatar has always upheld its unwavering support to Sudan through times of crisis and emergencies.
The country has taken the lead to offer financial, medical, and other forms of humanitarian assistance to the brotherly people of Sudan over the years.
Last year, Qatar affirmed its full support to ensure Sudan’s stability and sovereignty and backed the formation of the new Sudanese government.
It also delivered relief-aid to flood-stricken areas in Sudan to alleviate the suffering of thousands of families affected by the natural disaster.
The people of Qatar have once again come together to extend support to Sudan as it faces one of the worst floods in recent history and is experiencing a state of emergency.
In this regard, Qatar Charity (QC) and the Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) under the supervision of the Regulatory Authority for Charitable Activities (RACA) and the Qatar Media Corporation (QMC) have been running a donation drive to collect funds for the affectees of the catastrophe in Sudan.
His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani donated QR50 million to this 'Peace be with Sudan' campaign, during a live fundraising transmission held on Qatar TV yesterday.

The people of Qatar and Sudan have strong and deep ties and their leaderships have great co-operation with each other. Qatar has also been playing a key role in enhancing peace, stability and development in Sudan," he is quoted to have said by Gulf Times.
