posted on 11/09/2008: 5972 views



The UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) and the United Nations Relief Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA) signed an agreement yesterday to sponsor Palestinian orphaned children.

The agreement is part of a wider and long-term cooperation between the two sides to alleviate the suffering of Palestinian refugees. The agreement was signed on behalf of RCA by its Secretary General Dr. Saleh Al Taei and on behalf of UNRWA by Ambassador Peter Ford.

Shortly after signing the agreement, the two officials conferred on the current situation of the Palestinian refugees.

Ambassador Ford hailed the unfailing support provided by the UAE under the leadership of President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan to the Palestinian refugees.

The RCA and UNRWA recently signed an agreement to help the Palestinian refugees in Neirab, Syria. The UAE has donated USD 5 million to UNRWA to alleviate the slum-like conditions of the camp through Phase II of the Neirab Rehabilitation Project.

In Phase I of the Neirab Rehabilitation Project, UNRWA built new shelters for Neirab refugees in the nearby camp of Ein el Tal, which does not suffer from the same overcrowding. This phase is drawing to a close with 300 families relocating to new shelters. Their decampment will provide additional space for the refugees still residing in Neirab. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
