Projects worth Dh 415,000 set up by the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation in the flood-stricken Sudan, have now been opened, a senior official said yesterday. The projects bring urgent relief to catastrophe-hit areas in Sudan in keeping with directives of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, said Ibrahim Bu Melha, Dubai Attorney General and Deputy Chairman of the Foundation, according to a report in "Gulf News.” They were opened by Ali Othman Mohammed Taha, Sudan's First Vice-President and senior officials of the state. Taha expressed gratitude to the Foundation which has stood by the Sudanese people hit by floods in January. Bu Melha said: "Around 700 houses were destroyed, rendering many families homeless, and schools and hospitals were also heavily damaged. This made it incumbent on us to move quickly and work with the Islamic Call Organisation to offer assistance to the stricken areas.



"Urgent relief materials were sent and a number of projects were later built to help restore the damage caused by floods. "The projects include a Dh157,000 primary school in Mshaygat village, a Dh155,000 secondary school in Hbail village, a Dh75,000 health centre in Al Nakheelah village, a Dh14,000 well in Mshaygat village and another Dh14,000 well in Haj Tahir village." Bu Melha stressed the Foundation is keenly interested in standing by the needy everywhere especially in Arab and Islamic countries. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
