Khartoum — President of the Republic, Field Marshal Omer Al-Bashir hailed Board of Trustees of Islamic Relief Agency(IRA) in its 13rd session, saying it is expected that the meeting would explore new methods to keep up development of Agency work at local and regional levels amidst regional challenges besetting the voluntary relief work.

This came while the President of the Republic was addressing meeting of the Agency Board of Trustees in Khartoum in presence of Chairman of the IRA Board of Trustees, Professor Al-Gazouli Dafalla and members of Board of trustees.

President Al-Bashir support provided by IRA to poor people, persons with disabilities, orphans, vulnerable categories , displaced people and refugees in all states of Sudan, particularly in Darfur States and Blue Nile, an effort, he said, deserves appreciation.

He said despite regional and international challenges of drying sources of support and funding to its programs, activities and projects , the IRA work is still going on thanks to close coordination between the Agency and national organizations operating in field of humanitarian work.

President Al-Bashir commended efforts of Chairman and members of the IRA Board of Trustees , affirming his continued support to the Agency's activities and projects to achieve its goals at local and regional level.

He gave directive for allocation of an agricultural plot for IRA and he directed governors of States in this connection.
