(WAM) The Sharjah Charity International (SCI) has launched an intensive aid campaign to help the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and the Afghan refugees. Sultan bin Hadda Al Suwaidi, Chairman of the SCI Board of Directors, noted that since it was established in 1989, the SCI had been providing help to thousands of needy people in the UAE and abroad, according to a report in 'Gulf News.' He added, 'We give big emphasis to delivering the aid to its intended destination, and we have succeeded in achieving this with the help of the UAE Red Crescent Society.' Al Suwaidi, who has just returned from a trip to Palestine, condemned Jewish attempts to destroy the Islamic identity of Jerusalem. He stressed the need to fight such attempts and support the Palestinians in their Intifada. He added that on its part, the SCI had helped to set up a clinic close to Al Aqsa Mosque to treat the Palestinians who were frequently injured by Israeli bullets and tank fire in Jerusalem.



Al Suwaidi explained that the SCI delegation had visited various parts of Palestine and delivered medical aid, including beds and medicine, to hospitals in Ramallah and Tulkarem. A total of 20,000 US dollars was also distributed to families of the Palestinian martyrs, in addition to five tonnes of food that were donated by a philanthropist for Ramadan iftars, he said. The SCI, he said, had recently flown two planes with some 45 tonnes of food and medical aid for the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories. In Afghanistan, the SCI has been running a comprehensive aid campaign to help the Afghan refugees in cooperation with the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation. A SCI team is currently there to supervise the building of a refugee camp for 20,000 refugees. One generous person, he added, had donated 18 tonnes of dates to the Afghan refugees for the holy month of Ramadan. (WAM)
