Princess Haya loads plane with 95.3 metric tonnes of aid for South Sudanese refugees

HRH Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, Chairperson of International Humanitarian City is no stranger to philanthropy.

A recent Instagram post notes a heartfelt message prompting awareness of the plight of South Sudanese refugee camps in Uganda.

“Relief supplies being loaded at the International Humanitarian City to be airlifted to South Sudanese Refugee camps in Uganda.

“In total 95.3 metric tonnes of relief is being supplied by UNHCR on a 747B cargo aircraft donated by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The UNHCR is frontline in the global refugee crisis, and its work is phenomenal.”

“The sad and frightening truth is that the refugees fleeing South Sudan no longer have the means to survive and are in desperate need of this aid.

“They are the victims of a collapsing economy and conflict; a conflict that continues with no resolution in sight that has left millions the victim of famine, including many children.

“Yes, we need to deliver aid but we also need to force an end to this war. We can no longer ignore what is going on. We all need to act now.”
