Kenyan Ambassador Bishar Abdul Rahman Hussein yesterday lauded the humanitarian operations being carried out by the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) in the famine-hit Kenya.



He paid tribute to Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and RCS Chairman, for his care for the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Kenya and his persistent effort to alleviate its effects.



'Sheikh Hamdan is closely following up the aftermath of the desertification and famine disasters which hit the Horn of Africa,' he said, noting that the UAE was among the first donors who early responded to the famine disaster which claimed millions of lives.



The Kenyan envoy made his remarks during a meeting yesterday with RCS Board Chairman Khalifa Nasser Al Suweidi. The meeting reviewed the latest humanitarian situation in the Kenya along with ongoing efforts being made by the government, international community and relief agencies to assist the affected population.



He told Al Suweidi that access to drinking water is still a grave concern to the population who have to travel long distances to get it. He also pointed out to his government effort to overcome this problem.



On his part, Al Suweidi, affirmed that the RCS would spare no effort to execute more programmes to alleviate sufferings of people there. 'The drought disasters which hit some African countries has been lending due care from the RCS.....We have actually implemented a number of projects to reduce its repercussions. Efforts will go on especially those leading to solve the shortage of water,' he added. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
