A plane belonging to the Qatari Armed Forces arrived at Port Sudan airport, loaded with 40 tons of food and relief supplies, provided by the Qatar Fund for Development.

The Qatar Fund for Development said that this assistance comes within the framework of Qatar’s support for the Sudanese people, and an expression of solidarity with them during the difficult circumstances they face due to the continuation of the conflict.

The aid is part of Qatar’s ongoing airlift, and includes food and shelter aid, the fund said.

The World Food Programme (WFP) has warned that Sudan’s humanitarian crisis is worsening as a result of more than 11 months of conflict, with some 18 million people suffering from acute hunger.

Some 5 million people in Sudan are living in emergency starvation conditions, the highest number ever recorded during the harvest season.

The conflict in Sudan has led to the world’s worst displacement crisis, with more than 8 million people fleeing internally and across borders, and nearly two million migrating to neighbouring countries fleeing the conflict, increasing pressure on host countries.

According to the United Nations, the war in Sudan between the army and the Rapid Support Forces has killed about 14,000 people since fighting broke out in April.
