RIYADH: Two additional planes carrying 60 tons of humanitarian aid from Saudi Arabia arrived in Karachi to help those affected by Pakistan’s worst floods in decades.
The 6th and 7th flights to be dispatched by King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Centre (KSRelief) delivered tents, blankets, shelters, and food baskets for 8,424 beneficiaries, reported the Saudi Press Agency (SPA).
The batches of aid were received by the National Disaster Management Authority to be distributed in several regions across Pakistan based on the need.
KSRelief earlier established a Saudi air bridge to deliver urgent aid to Pakistan amid the floods, which drowned third of the country, killing over 1,300 people and displacing millions more. .
The first two batches of Saudi aid arrived earlier this month.
“The aid reflects the Kingdom’s mission to help people in need across the world in various crises,” read the SPA statement.
