Ajman-based International and Humanitarian Charity Organisation (IHCO) said it has laid the foundation stone for a new residential community, Al Salam Village in Sudan’s River Nile State.
The village will see the construction of 200 houses for local people affected by floods that recently swept through the country.
"The village will include a Grand Mosque and a health centre," explained Dr. Khalid Abdel Wahhab Al Khajah, Executive Manager of IHCO.
This project will be the beginning of similar charitable projects in Sudan, which aim to ease the suffering of flood victims, he noted.
The Organisation also distributed 5,000 food parcels to affected people in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and several remote villages, he added, while thanking the donors and philanthropists who support the IHCO’s relief efforts in Sudan.
Local beneficiaries of the International and Humanitarian Charity Organisation’s charitable projects in Sudan thanked the UAE and the organisation for supporting people living in affected provinces.
