Dh265m relief projects to support Palestinians

posted on 23/10/2002: 657 views


The UAE has so far spent Dh265 million in relief projects in Palestine, having sent 21 planeloads of goods to the West Bank and Gaza Strip, via Amman and other cities in Jordan, and is building 800 houses in Jenin on a war footing, Dr Saleh M. Al Taei, Relief and Projects Department Manager of the RCS told Khaleej Times yesterday.



Dr Taei said that the situation in Gaza and in other occupied territories was deteriorating daily and the RCS had plans for sending four more planeloads of relief shortly, with one already having been sent via Al Areesh in Egypt, and another expected to fly next week, carrying relief materials and food for the hapless population afflicted by the ongoing Israeli aggression.



He noted that the RCS had opened an office in Gaza recently to help people and ensure greater coordination efforts with the UAE head office. The RCS was paying salaries to doctors and hospital staff at five of the main hospitals in Palestine now, and attempting to ensure that they were equipped with the latest medical equipment and medicines to treat the sick and the injured. He said that 1000 school bags had been sent to schoolchildren in Palestine, as part of the RCS' school-bags programme. The RCS was also aggressively moving ahead with the $30 million project to reconstruct 800 houses in Jenin, which would make the region a self-contained, mini-city when completed, with mosques, schools and clinics for the Palestinians, who have lost their homes and all facilities to lead normal, decent lives.
