Saudi relief airlift arrives in Pakistan to support flood victims

Karachi: An airlift relief plane from King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSrelief) arrived in Karachi, Pakistan today from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, carrying 90 tons of food, shelter and medical assistance to support flood-affected people throughout the country. The urgent aid, which will benefit 9,600 people, was sent according to a directive from the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, to provide emergency assistance following the recent heavy rains and devastating flooding which have killed and injured thousands of people and forced many thousands more to flee their homes.

Saudi Arabia's Ambassador to Pakistan, HE Nawaf Al Malki, Saudi Arabian Embassy's Consul General in Karachi, Bandar Al Dayel, and Pakistan's Provincial Minister of Sindh for Labour and Information and Human Resources, Saeed Ghani, were at the airport to receive the aid.

Ambassador Al Malki stated that the purpose of the aid being provided by the Kingdom was to address the massive impact of the flooding on cities, towns and villages, adding that the floodwaters had caused significant loss of life, injuries and property damage in many regions. The Ambassador also said that the urgent aid reflected the strong historical ties between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan. The Kingdom's ongoing assistance to the country provides support and aid to beneficiaries across a number of humanitarian sectors.

KSrelief, on behalf of the Kingdom, provides comprehensive, impartial aid to vulnerable communities around the world. This airlift is just one example of Saudi Arabia's commitment to providing urgent support to countries facing crises such as the one being experienced in Pakistan. To date, KSrelief has implemented 2,086 humanitarian projects in 86 countries, saving and improving the lives of millions of people in need.
