Doha, Aug 19: Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has allocated US $5 million for the relief of flood victims in Kerala.

The allocated amount will also assist in sheltering of those who lost their homes due to natural calamity.

Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani also sent a cable of condolences to President of India Ram Nath Kovind on the victims of the floods which swept Kerala, wishing the injured a speedy recovery.

Deputy Amir Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Thani also sent a cable of condolences to Indian President.

Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani sent a cable of condolences to Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi.

Meanwhile, Qatar Charity, through its representative in India, has launched emergency relief for those affected by the huge floods in Kerala with a total value of half a million QR for the first stage.

This humanitarian interface coincides with the launch of a fund raising campaign targeting more than QR 4m to meet the urgent humanitarian needs of 60,000 people through food, medical and shelter assistance.

Floods in Kerala have killed more than 300 people and displaced other thousands, causing major damage to homes and infrastructure.
