August 31, 2019 (KHARTOUM) - The Qatar Fund For Development is sending $5m disaster relief aid to support flood victims in Sudan, said a statement released on Saturday.

The first batch of Qatar’s humanitarian assistance arrived at Khartoum airport on Saturday, as part of an airlift aimed at easing the suffering of flood-affected Sudanese in several areas.

Mohamed Fadlallah Siraj, Sudan’s Deputy Commissioner-General for Humanitarian Aid, said that the convoy contained 65 tons of shelter materials, nutritional materials, spraying equipment and medicines.

Seraj also praised the role of Qatar in helping the flood victims in the country and thanked the government and people of Qatar for providing this assistance.

In addition to the 65 tons, the Qatar Fund directed humanitarian and relief institutions in Khartoum "to provide emergency assistance from food baskets and support to water and sanitation sector;" according to a statement released in Doha.

Besides, "medical teams will also provide urgent health care to those affected by the floods," the Fund said.

Some 62 people died as a result of the heavy rains that hit the 15 Sudanese states.

    Yes, there they are! Qatar and gulf Arab states were the ones that paid ’the US, the UK and France’ bombing of Libya in 2013. African countries cowered like goats being led into the Nile. The US, the UK and France were used as mercenaries and were paid by the ’gulf Arab states and their evil juus (so-called israel)’. But when it comes to South Sudan, then every piece of trash around the world>>>

The US, the UK, their UN, their sleazy NGOs, their evil juus (so-called israelis), Abesh (their so-called ethiopia), some of their Bantus and some of their creeps in between; the ISIS/L, EL Qada, Muslim brotherhood, El Nustra, Jesh El Islam, Boko Haram, our own so-called SPLM/A-IO and others>>>

          Islam *is not a religion, never has and will never ever will*, if the *Islam* to be a religion, then the ’Dinkas/Muonyjiengs’ of the Sudan would have been Muslims since 630th AD. We always tell our fools that ’an evil juus (so-called israel) woman was the one that *lied to Mohamed in today’s Saudi Arabia* to ’copy cat everything in the Bible and put in his Arab tweaks’ and called it ’Quran’>>>

            Mr. Mohamed did the same. And when the *Mohammedans tried to move out of Saudi Arabia to propagate their ’religion’ to ’unbelievers’, the country the evil came to was ’Southern Egypt (Valley of Kings). They were killed pretty badly. There were no ’bombs’ then, but arrows, bows and spears. The Mohammedans went and captured Northern Egypt, to day’s, ’Iqzandria, Alexandria’>>>

              The Mohammedans came back to Southern Egypt (Valley of Kings). They were bloody nosed pretty badly again. Then went and "conquered" Libya, Tunisia, El Geria, Morocco, parts of Spain, Malta and some parts of Italy. The evil came back to Southern Egypt (Valley of Kings). And they were destroyed than before. They went back to Northern Egypt and Saudi Arabia and came back to>>>

                  Many *West Africans* used to go/pilgrim to Saudi Arabia and passed through the present day’s "Dar-fur, through to North Sudan and Southern Egypt and to Saudi Arabia". Some of these *West African-Mohammedans* thought it was best for them to be next to Saudi Arabia. ’That is how the Dinkas/Muonyjiengs’ of the Sudan welcomed these vermin into our country and over our people fellows>>>

There will not be evil juus (so-called israel), North Sudan, Abesh (so-called ethiopia), part of Kenya, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, the US, Northern Nigeria, Chad and some of the evils we don’t want here in our ’IGAD and the AU’, reasons, pure HATRED AND RACISM FELLOWS.
