Islamabad - A convoy of 20 trucks carrying relief materials left here on Saturday to quake-stricken cities of Balakot and Muzaffarabad as part of the humanitarian programme initiated by the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS). Both ill-fated cities will receive ten truck loads of aid each for distribution among victims and displaced, according to Saeed Al Mansouri, head of the RCS delegation in Pakistan.



"The relief items comprise foodstuff, winter clothing, tents, blankets and essential baby needs," said Al Mansouri. He noted that a substantial portion of the charity agency's humanitarian programme was devoted to supporting the displaced in their camps in Islamabad and other quake-hit areas.



Meanwhile, Pakistan's press has given wide coverage of the RCS' relief programmes in the South Asian country with local Azkar daily publishing a lengthy interview with Al Mansouri. Al Mansouri told the paper that his agency had dispatched 12 plane-load of relief from Abu Dhabi to Islamabad as part of an airlift launched to help quake victims.



He said Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and RCS Chairman, was closely following up humanitarian developments at the Pakistani arena. Another local daily, Awsaf, was full of praise to the UAE for the support it had rendered to the Pakistani people during the on-going ordeal. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
