CAIRO: The U.A.E. and its wise leadership are keen to continue supporting the Palestinian people, especially in Gaza Strip, to enhance their steadfastness in the face of the tragic events in the Strip, Dr Hamdan Musallam al Mazrouie, Chairman of the Board of the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has affirmed.

He told a press conference he held in Cairo today that, 'We are here in Egypt to oversee the running of the land aid convoys to Gaza Strip.' He said the ERC teams had already purchased the urgently needed food and medical supplies and the truck convoy will move to Gaza in coordination with the concerned authorities in Egypt and Gaza.

The ERC, he added, had delivered food and financial assistance to distressed families and is currently providing healthcare services through its field hospital.

As for the ERC contribution to reconstruction plan in Gaza, Al Mazrouie said that a set of agreements had been sealed with international organisations to build new houses for Palestinians whose houses were destroyed in the recent events. In this context, he referred to the agreement signed with the UNRWA to build houses at a total cost of Dh 150 million.

The ERC aid workers, he noted, were the first responders to enter the Gaza Strip and had stepped up its relief operations to Gaza through a two-pronged approach: first, to secure whatever assistance is available from Gaza itself, and second; to purchase urgent food and medical aid from Egypt. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
