The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, has implemented phase one of its 'Basmat Al Nuwar' project, set-up to aid underprivileged families in the Old City of Jerusalem in an effort to improve quality of life and ease their economic burdens.

In cooperation with a local association, the ERC distributed house appliances including refrigerators, gas cookers, washing machines, televisions, fans and heaters and cooking utensils to fifty disadvantaged families who live around the Al Aqsa Mosque.

The beneficiaries expressed their thanks and appreciation for the U.A.E.'s humanitarian gesture and said that that the assistance has come in time to help relieve them from their harsh living conditions.

Sami Makkawi, Head of the ERC office in Ramallah, said that the Basmat Al Nuwar project has allocated Dh1 million to aid the people of the Old City and will continue to deliver more assistance to underprivileged families there in the form of food baskets, school supplies and university student loan aid. – Emirates News Agency, WAM – Read more:
