Social Solidarity Minister Ghada Wali ordered on Friday the ministry's directorate in Assuit governorate to dispatch relief aid to the flood-hit areas in the Upper Egyptian governorate.

The floods led to the total collapse of nearly 42 houses in "Ezbet Saaed" district, which is located at the foot of the mountain in Abnob.

The ministry said in a statement that it offered all necessary aid to the families of the victims.

It added it set up a camp that includes 17 makeshift tents and distributes 400 blankets and beds on the flood-affected residents.

It also noted that 100 pounds were given to every person in each affected family.

The directorate also coordinated with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), including the Egyptian Food Bank and Relief and Emergency Foundation, to deliver relief aid, including food and clothes to the flood-affected persons.

It also had contacts with Dar Al-Orman Association to deliver quilts and Misr El-Kheir Foundation, which offered blankets and food cartons.
