January 20, 2014
Saudi Ambassador to Sudan Faisal bin Hamid Mualla opened a medical clinics project in Khartoum today. The endeavor is being carried out by the Saudi Red Crescent Authority (SRCA), on the orders of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz.
In a speech, Ambassador Mualla noted that the project is part of the Kingdom’s pledge to provide $10 million in aid to those affected by flooding in Sudan last year. He added that several more clinics will be opened in other Sudanese states during the next phase of the assistance program.
Meanwhile, Ambassador Mualla opened a drinking water line project in the city of Fath, with a capacity of 12,000 gallons per hour, to address the area’s water shortage.
