The UAE has allocated 70% of the $100 million pledged in April to various United Nations (UN) agencies and humanitarian organizations, supporting efforts to alleviate the humanitarian crisis in Sudan. This announcement was made during the International Humanitarian Conference for Sudan and Neighbouring Countries. The aid covers a comprehensive range of services, including food, health, livelihood support, emergency shelter, and protection for women. The UAE hopes this assistance will prevent further degradation of the humanitarian situation and the looming threat of famine in Sudan. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) confirmed that the aid will be directed to key partners and UN agencies such as OCHA, WFP, UNHCR, FAO, and WHO. Reem bint Ebrahim Al Hashimy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, noted that the UAE has been actively providing aid since the crisis began, contributing $130 million and 9,500 tonnes of food and medical supplies via 148 relief flights, and sending a ship with 1,000 tonnes of urgent relief supplies. The UAE has also supported refugee camps in Abéché, Chad, and sent a plane with 100 tonnes of food supplies to Sudanese refugees in South Sudan through the WFP. Al Hashimy emphasized the UAE's commitment to providing humanitarian support to Sudan, including aid to El Fasher and other areas in cooperation with WFP. Additionally, the UAE established two field hospitals in Chadian cities Amdjarass and Abéché, treating 29,378 patients since their inception. Al Hashimy reiterated the UAE's call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire and a peaceful resolution to the crisis through political processes. Martin Griffiths, the Under-Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, expressed deep gratitude for the UAE's $70 million contribution to the UN for Sudan relief. Filippo Grandi, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, and Cindy McCain, Executive Director of the World Food Programme, also thanked the UAE for its significant contributions to humanitarian efforts in Sudan.
