Urgent Relief Aid for South Africa
In cooperation with its strategic executive partner Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD) has deployed 22 tons and 908 kg of relief aid to the Republic of South Africa in response to the devastating floods in Durban.
The aid shipments included ventilators, beds, medical supplies, sportswear for children, pillows, blankets, and power generators.
On this occasion, HE Director-General of QFFD Khalifa Al Kuwari said that "this urgent aid comes to play a critical role in alleviating the severity of this humanitarian disaster for the affected people in the Republic of South Africa, especially after the floods that hit the coastal city of Durban," adding that "although this aid is an emergency relief in nature, it plays a vital role in alleviating the repercussions of the crisis, by helping to ensure decent living conditions for the affected people." CEO of QRCS Faisal Al Emadi said that "the relief aid provided will meet the humanitarian needs of over 100,000 affected people, taking into account the most vulnerable groups," noting that health centers and hospitals will be supported with the supplies necessary for providing health services.
A relief delegation from QRCS and QFFD was deployed to monitor the situation closely and supervise the distribution of relief materials, in coordination with the South African Red Cross Society (SARCS).
Since last April, the coastal region of Durban in the Republic of South Africa has been suffering from massive flooding, which left behind hundreds of victims and huge property losses, especially in infrastructure.
