Mohammed bin Zayed orders air bridge for Lebanon aid

posted on 29/07/2006: 786 views



Hundreds of tonnes of relief materials will be flown to Lebanon over a four-flight air bridge, ordered by General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.



Sheikh Mohammed ordered the quick dispatch of relief materials, the first phase of which will start by ferrying basic necessities such as foodstuff, medicines and medical items to alleviate suffering of the Lebanese people.



Khalifa Nasser Al Suweidi, board chairman of the UAE Red Crescent Society, said that Sheikh Mohammed's orders emanate from the great concern shown by the country's leadership over the humanitarian situation of the Lebanese people. "The RCS has immediately started implementing Sheikh Mohammed's orders.



Plans are on to send the first consignment of aid to the affected people in Lebanon," Al Suweidi said. He added that arrangements are also being made to send truck-loads of relief materials by land, in coordination with the UAE embassy in Beirut and the Lebanese Red Cross Society.



An RCS delegation, led by Mohammed Nasser Al Otaiba, will leave tomorrow for Damascus to oversee aid distribution operations and to purchase more relief materials from Syrian markets. (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
