The Muslim World League (MWL) has sent urgent relief aid packages to assist flood-affected people in a number of areas of Pakistan.


The campaign kicked off under the supervision of the head of the National Authority for Natural Disaster Management of Pakistan, Gen. Mohammad Afdhal, and with the participation of Saudi ambassador to Pakistan Nawaf bin Saeed Al-Malki, and a number of Pakistani officials.


Afdhal praised the efforts of the MWL and said the aid will help alleviate the suffering of those affected by the disastrous torrents and floods.


For his part, MWL regional director Saad Al-Harthi said that the program primarily aims to distribute food baskets to the most needy segments of those affected in the areas hit by torrential rains and floods.


"This comes within the humanitarian association’s efforts to help the needy around the world, through coordinating with the relevant government agencies in each country.”


Al-Harthi also said that the program is part of the numerous programs and projects in the fields of development and relief that MWL is implementing in Pakistan, stressing that MWL's relief activities do not differ based on religion, ethnicity or otherwise, but rather provides services to all those in need, equally.
