KSRelief responds to Sudan crisis with $100M in humanitarian aid, relief efforts
KSRelief has responded to the current Sudan crisis with $100 million in humanitarian aid and relief efforts.
On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia announced the launch of an air bridge to provide aid and medical equipment to Sudan, which has been hit by a severe crisis.
The air bridge, operated by the King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSRelief), will send two planes carrying essential supplies to Sudan.
The first plane, scheduled to leave at 1 p.m. local time, will carry medical equipment and shelter tents for internally displaced individuals. The second plane will leave at 2 p.m.
The initiative comes after a power struggle between Sudan’s army leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan and his deputy, Mohamed Hamdan Daglo, led to clashes that displaced 700,000 people, according to the International Organization for Migration.
Saudi King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman directed KSRelief to provide $100 million worth of aid to Sudan and launch a donation campaign through the “Sahem” platform.
The campaign has already raised close to $280,000.
