September 12, 2010

Saudi Ambassador to Pakistan Abdulaziz Al-Ghadeer inaugurated the Camp of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for the Sheltering of People Affected by Floods in Pakistan in the southern Sindh province yesterday. The facility, located next to a Saudi field hospital, is sheltering 500 families and providing relief materials. Ambassador Al-Ghadeer noted that the camp is an extension of Saudi land-route convoys, which began delivering aid last week under the banner “1,000 trucks for two million affected people in Pakistan.”
