The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) in the Banadir region of the Somali capital, Mogadishu, launched yesterday a project to support food security in the Federal Republic of Somalia, to secure 2,838 tons of food baskets, each weighing 67 kilograms, to be distributed to 254,184 individuals affected by the drought there.

Somali Deputy Prime Minister Mahdi Guled thanked the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, represented by the King Salman Relief Center, for its continuous assistance to the needy in his country and extending a helping hand to them in various times and adversities, praising the center’s support for the Somali economy by securing foodstuffs from the local market instead of importing them from abroad.

The Ambassador of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to Somalia, Ahmed Al-Mawlid, stated that the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has taken the initiative to present An urgent humanitarian and relief aid package for the Somali people to contribute to alleviating the drought crisis, in addition to implementing some development projects in the health, educational and social fields during the coming period.

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Disaster Management of the Somali government, Khadija Diriyah, stated that we are launching a project to support food security in the Republic of Somalia to help families affected by drought in coordination with the federal states. May God preserve them and the King Salman Relief Center for the generous humanitarian support they provide to their brothers in Somalia.

This comes within the framework of the humanitarian aid provided by the Kingdom, represented by the Center, to alleviate the suffering of those affected by the effects of the drought that hit some governorates and regions in Somalia.
