QATAR has sent an­other batch of aid to help the flood vic­tims in So­ma­lia. This comes fol­low­ing the di­rec­tives of the Amir HH Sheikh Tamim bin Ha­mad al Thani to help the flood-hit peo­ple.

“Qatar con­tin­ued to trans­fer aid to sup­port peo­ple af­fected by the flood that has hit towns in the south and cen­tre of So­ma­lia,” Qatar News Agency said in a re­port.

Qatar Fund for De­vel­op­ment (QFFD), in co­or­di­na­tion with the Stand­ing Com­mit­tee for Res­cue and Re­lief Works and Hu­man­i­tar­ian Aids for Af­flicted Ar­eas in Brotherly and Friendly Coun­tries, has sent the new con­sign­ment of aid.

The con­sign­ment com­prises 46 tonnes of var­i­ous med­i­cal and re­lief ma­te­ri­als, bring­ing the to­tal aid sent from Qatar so far to 88 tonnes. The re­lief items, trans­ported by a plane of the Qatari Amiri Air Force, were ac­com­pa­nied by a team from the Qatari In­ter­na­tional Search and Res­cue Group (Lekhwiya). Ear­lier, Qatar had sent 42 tonnes of re­lief ma­te­ri­als.

Rains have raised the wa­ter lev­els of the Sha­belle and Juba rivers in So­ma­lia, dis­plac­ing thou­sands of fam­i­lies.
