Kilimanjaro, February 24 (QNA) - Qatar Charity (QC) continued the distribution of urgent relief aid to those affected by floods and landslides in northern Tanzania, in the presence of officials from Qatar Charity and Tanzania.

The aid was transported by the two aircrafts of the Qatar Armed Forces, in cooperation with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania, with each aircraft carrying 45 tons of aid, including basic food and medical supplies, provided by Qatar Charity.

HE Qatar's Ambassador to Tanzania Fahd bin Rashid Al Marekhi said, "This aid is aimed at strengthening and enhancing the distinguished and historical Qatari-Tanzanian relations. It came to assist our brothers and sisters in Tanzania following the natural disaster that they have faced in the past days and months." Advisor to Qatar Charity's CEO Jassim Abdullah Al Jassim said, "This aid comes as a humanitarian response and fraternal duty to alleviate the suffering of those affected by this disaster, in coordination with local Tanzanian authorities." On her part, Regional Commissioner of Manyara Queen Sendiga stated, "We express our gratitude to the State of Qatar for this assistance, and we assure you that it will reach those most affected by the disaster." Deputy Minister, Prime Minister's Office, Ummy Hamis Nderiananga said, "On behalf of the government led by Dr. Samia Suluhu Hassan, we are extremely grateful to the State of Qatar for providing humanitarian assistance to the Tanzanian government." She thanked Qatar for this prompt humanitarian response.

It is worth mentioning that the Qatari aid will meet the needs of the local community. The project includes the distribution of urgent assistance to the most impoverished and marginalized families in the flood-affected areas of the Manyara region. The project aims to distribute food packages and essential supplies.

Tanzania has been experiencing heavy rainfall since October last year, which caused mudslides that have claimed the lives of dozens, with hundreds injured. The floods have also resulted in the destruction of various crops. (QNA)
