(WAM)The first UAE plane carrying 40 tons of winter clothes and other relief supplies for Afghani refugees arrived here today. The plane was part of the relief campaign for Afghan refugees organised by the UAE Red Crescent Society. Mohammed Habroush al Rumaithy, RCS Board member, who received the plane along with UAE Ambassador to Pakistan Ali Mohammed al Shamsi, said that the plane was the first of an airlift of four planes.
