The Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), a Turkish charity, on Thursday said it sent 30 new containers with relief supplies to the needy in war-torn Sudan, Anadolu Agency reports.

The new package is part of IHH’s continuing aid campaign, which was launched in June, and includes food items, blankets, hygiene kits, clothes and wheelchairs. The organisation also sent 15 containers in July.

Besides the casualties, conflict between the Sudanese Army and the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces (RSF) has displaced about 5.3 million people within Sudan and neighbouring countries, according to UN figures. Fighting erupted on 15 April over tensions over the integration of the RSF into the armed forces.
