The field teams of Qatar Charity (QC), with generous support from Qatar Fund Development (QFFD), have provided new food assistance to 20 shelters in Port Sudan of in the Red Sea state. This is part of a project aimed at supporting the affected families in Sudan with 50,000 food packages.

The field teams of Qatar Charity and QFFD have delivered the packages containing essential food items to the centers in various areas. The distribution was supervised by HE Ambassador of the State of Qatar to Sudan Mohamed bin Ibrahim.

Mr. Nader Abdul Karim, official of the shelters in the Red Sea State, said, “the Qatari support through QFFD and Qatar Charity, has remained present in assisting war-displaced individuals. The support reached all the shelters in Port Sudan.

He added that the assistance has alleviated the hardships faced by the internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in the shelters.

Two displaced sisters, Aisha and Ilham, spoke about their struggles during the displacement journey until they reached the shelter in Port Sudan, where urgent food assistance was provided to them.

Mr. Aisha Ibrahim was displaced due to the war from Omdurman’s Salha to Wad Medani. Later, she and her four children, along with her ailing mother, were displaced from Wad Medani after fighting broke out on December 18, 2023. After a harsh journey, they reached the shelter in Port Sudan.

Amina Shuaib Abdul Wahid, the supervisor of the Midwives Shelter, says that the conditions of the IDPs who arrived from Khartoum and Wad Madani are very difficult, as some of them have lost everything. QFFD and Qatar Charity played a significant role in supporting the center by providing all the necessary food items.

Jawaher Mohamed, a mother of seven children, described the food assistance as crucial. She mentioned that it gave them hope for a dignified life.
