Qatar Charity has launched an urgent campaign to help those affected by floods in Sudan and Nepal.

The campaign aims to assist people affected by floods, including food, shelter, health, and education. Qatar Charity seeks to provide food baskets consisting of eight types of basic food supplies, in addition to providing health services for people injured by the floods. It also aims to provide safe drinking water to the affected people, in addition to providing shelter which includes tents, a living room bag, and floor mats and supporting the educational process.

Last week, Qatar Charity marched an aid convoy to those affected by floods in Sudan's White Nile state, which has seen the worst flooding in years, causing severe damage to the population.

The convoy benefited 20,000 people and the aid amounted to QR1mn.

Major General Haidar al-Turaifi, Governor of the White Nile, praised the level of relations between the Qatari and Sudanese peoples.

He pointed out that that this convoy is the first to reach the state, adding it reflects the spirit of cooperation, integration, and brotherhood between the two countries. He said that the convoy will contribute to the shelter of citizens affected by floods and rain.

Several Sudanese beneficiaries expressed their thanks and gratitude to Qatar and Qatar Charity.

A total of 245,700 people were affected by floods and rains in 15 of Sudan's 18 states.

A total of 32,815 houses were completely or partially demolished and 59 people were killed, according to a report by the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA).

In Nepal, 384,950 people have been affected by floods and mudslides caused by heavy monsoon rains, according to a July report of Nepal Red Crescent. The number of victims reached 78, the number of missing persons reached 22, and the total number of houses that were totally or partially affected was 18,694.

Qatar Charity called on the people of Qatar to interact with the campaign and donate and provide urgent assistance to alleviate those affected by the harsh conditions. (QNA)
