The UAE president ordered delivery of urgent humanitarian assistance to quake-effected population in Haiti in coordination with the Government of Dominican.

The release added that about 500 tonnes of urgent and basic relief materials, which have been directly purchased from local market in the Dominican, will be transported to Haiti by land.

The Foundation indicated that its move to secure humanitarian assistance from the Dominican local market followed a series of meetings and discussions with UN specialised agencies, diplomatic missions and other humanitarian and relief organisations. They all stressed the urgency of delivering urgent humanitarian assistance from the nearest point to Haiti.
