EGYPT TODAY 01 MAR 2020
The Egyptian military transported relief to the South Sudanese flood victims that have been languishing in its aftermath for months.
The assistance providers are the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Social Solidarity, the Egyptian Red Crescent, and the Egyptian Agency of Partnership for Development.
The aid, shipped on military jets to Juba Airport, includes medications and medical equipment.
The move comes as part of “historical and national bonds of Egypt with her African brothers, which entails full support and solidarity at the times of ordeals and crises,” an official statement said.
More than a million South Sudanese people have been affected by the flooding by displacement, home damage, crop and land damage and other impacts.
