Qatar’s Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim Al Thani announced a $50m aid package to help the people of war-torn Sudan on Monday.

The aid is being sent as part of Qatar’s humanitarian response plan for Sudan and regional plan for refugees, stemming from the country's fraternal responsibility and moral and humanitarian duty.

The promise was made during Sheikh Mohammed’s speech, via video conferencing, at the high-level pledging conference to support the humanitarian response in Sudan and the region.

Donors at the conference pledged a total of $1.5bn to support the humanitarian response in Sudan and called on all parties to immediately end the fighting.

The conference was co-chaired by Qatar along with Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Germany, the UN’s Office for the Co-ordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the European Union and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

More than 80 Governments and other donors, international humanitarian organizations and aid officials took part.

“Qatar will spare no effort to stand by the Sudanese people until they overcome this crisis. Qatar’s firm position is to support the unity, independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Sudan and reject any forms of meddling in the country's internal affairs. We fully respect the Sudanese people's right to freedom, peace, justice and prosperity,” said Sheikh Mohammed.

Sheikh Mohammed praised regional and international efforts — especially the joint Saudi-US mediation that achieved multiple humanitarian armistices — and lauded the efforts being made by African Union and other agencies.

The Qatari top official highlighted some of Qatar's initiatives since the start of the conflict, including the operation of an air bridge which delivered 318 tonnes of aid including food, clothes and medicines. A total of 1,784 people were also evacuated from the conflict zones.

He also called on regional and international partners to provide essential donations and financial contributions to mitigate the hardships of the Sudanese people.
