A fourth planeload of relief assistance, ordered by President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, for Somalian people, arrived in Mogadishu yesterday as part of an air bridge being organised by the UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS. The plane, loaded with 40 tons of food items for distribution to the Somalian poor and the needy, was received on arrival here by the UAE RCS delegation and members of the Higher Committee for the Relief of Somalian People. The delegation, headed by Ahmed Saddiq Al Haja, the Assistant Director for RCS' Relief Department, continued today the distribution of food items to the beneficiaries in new areas in the Somalian capital.



According to Al Haja, a total of 500 food parcels of 50 kilos each had been distributed, adding that more than 800 families benefited from the gesture, which will take the recipients through the month of Ramadan, adding that the exercise would continue for some days to come and will cover most part of the war-torn country. Somalian officials have praised Sheikh Zayed for the gesture and prayed to God to protect and bless him. The delegation toured a number of places, including schools and orphanages, being sponsored by the RCS, to acquaint themselves with the activities there and to assess the kind of help needed.
