A third Emirati aircraft carrying aid from the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) arrived in Sudan on Tuesday.

Sheikh , Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Commander of the Armed Forces, dispatched the plane to the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, carrying medicines, medical equipment, food and shelter.

The UAE has intensified its relief efforts to Sudan over the past week, where severe flooding has killed more than 100 people and left thousands homeless.

Dr Mohammed Al Falahi, secretary general of the ERC, said the UAE was working with partners in Sudan to reduce the health, environmental and psychological damage caused by the floods.

The UN said the floods affected more than half a million people and destroyed or damaged tens of thousands of homes. Khartoum, North Darfur, in the country’s west, and Sennar in the south were the worst-hit states.
