Qatar has never shied away from its responsibility of sending aid and helping people around the globe who are suffering from natural calamities or war.

The country, which came forward to help earthquake survivors in Turkey recently, has also done a lot to help Sudanese people facing a raging civil war.

A Qatari plane, carrying 37 tonnes of foodstuffs collected by the Qatar Fund for Development, arrived at the Port Sudan Airport on Sunday.

With this aid, Qatar underlined its support to the Sudanese people during this difficult period. It also appreciated the Sudanese’s steadfastness in the face of adversity due to conflict.

At the same time, Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs said it had evacuated 164 people with Qatari residency from Sudan. They were flown out using a Qatari plane that took off from Port Sudan Airport. This brought the total number of evacuated Qatari citizens and residents to 1,784.

The Ministry also reiterated the country’s keenness in improving the security and stability of the sisterly Republic of Sudan.

Last month, the Qatar Red Crescent Society announced the allocation of $1m for urgent relief work and improving humanitarian conditions in war-torn Sudan.

The aid, which was distributed in cooperation with the Sudanese Red Crescent Society and the Sudanese Ministry of Health, benefited over 119,000 people belonging to 17,000 families.
