Kabul - UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) has distributed cash to the needy Afghani people in cooperation with the UAE embassy in Afghanistan.

The move is part of sustained assistance provided by the UAE to people of Afghanistan to ease suffering of people in that country.

Abdullah Khalifa Saeed Al Murshidi, director of the RCA office said, "US$7, 000 donated by a philanthropist was distributed to 120 poor Afghani families at Bagh Ji district in Bagram province to ease burden on them. US$5, 000 was also donated by the RCA office to build a mosque in Khost".

He added that three mosques were built in different districts in Jalal Abad at cost US$30, 000 for each mosque. The RCA also supervised digging of 269 water wells across Afghanistan, particularly in remote areas. The second phase of the fence of Sheikh Zayed city, sewerage system, water and electricity has been accomplished in Afghanistan at cost US$1.7 million.

Fatima Jaylani, chairperson of Afghani Red Crescent Society, lauded the support of the UAE government and people, which has eased suffering of Afghani people.

While receiving the delegation of the RCA in Kabul, she added that the continuous support from the UAE "reflects deep ties between the two friendly countries and commitment of the UAE to alleviate suffering of Afghani people". – Emirates News Agency, WAM
