Qatar Fund for Development (QFFD), in cooperation with its strategic executive partner Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS), has deployed over 22 tonnes of relief aid to the Republic of South Africa in response to the devastating floods in Durban.

The aid was delivered via a humanitarian air bridge by the Qatar Emiri Air Force (QEAF) aircraft to King Shaka International Airport. The aid shipments included ventilators, beds, medical supplies, sportswear for children, pillows, blankets, and power generators.

Dr. Naledi Pandor, Minister for Foreign Affairs of South Africa, praised the firm relations between the two countries.

Minister of Local Governance and Traditional Affairs of South Africa stressed the importance of such assistance provided by Qatar to her country and, in particular, to the province of KwaZulu, which demonstrates Qatar's solidarity with South Africa.

HE Tariq Ali Al Ansari, Ambassador of Qatar to South Africa, noted that the donation reflects the principles and ethics of humanitarian and relief work in Qatar as one of the pillars of the country's policy.
