UAE sends more food, medical aid to Sudan


The UAE has sent three aid planes carrying more than 115 tonnes of medical and food supplies to support the people of Sudan.

Two planes arrived at Port Sudan Airport loaded with 100 tonnes of essential drugs and medical items to treat injuries and conduct emergency surgeries.

The supplies include a wide range of medicines for trauma and emergency care, antibiotics, non-steroidal medicines, anti-inflammatories, wound dressings, surgical tape, and endoscopy kits.

Meanwhile, the third plane arrived in Chad carrying 15 tonnes of food to support Sudanese refugees and those displaced by the conflict.

Sultan Mohammed Al Shamsi, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation for International Development Affairs, said that the assistance reflects the UAE's humanitarian approach and its steadfast commitment to providing aid and support to countries in times of need.

Since the beginning of the crisis, the UAE was one of the first countries to deliver direct aid to Sudan.

More than 240 tonnes of medical and food supplies and other aid items have already been dispatched.

The UAE has also enabled the evacuation of 744 foreign nationals and diplomats, their families, and dozens of humanitarian cases.
