Saudi Arabia to allocate $100 million in aid to Sudan


Saudi Arabia has pledged to allocate $100 million in humanitarian aid to war-torn Sudan.

The Kingdom pledged its support to Sudan as it grapples with an “unprecedented crisis,” with the Kingdom’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Prince Faisal bin Farhan, promising to stand by the country and help restore safety and stability.

Prince Faisal expressed his support for Sudan via his official Twitter page on Sunday, stating that Saudi Arabia’s “decision… is to stand by it and support it in order to bring it to safety.”

His comments came as Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief) to provide $100m worth of humanitarian aid to Sudan.

The royal pair also called for a public donations campaign to help mitigate the impact of the crisis on the Sudanese population.

Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Rabeeah, Supervisor General of KSRelief, said that the aid pledge is a sign of King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed’s desire to help Sudan and support its people.

Fighting that erupted in Sudan in April has so far led to the deaths of around 700 people, with thousands more injured and large numbers fleeing the country.
