The urgent aid aims to safeguard the agricultural season in Sudan, especially that many Sudanese depend on the sector for their livelihoods. The nutrients were sent in a ship that sailed from Al Jubail Industrial Port in Saudi Arabia to Sudan.

The assistance is part of the 3-billion-U.S.-dollar financial support allocated by both countries, including 500 million U.S. dollar as a deposit at the central bank to support the country's economy that suffers because of the political unrest.
