Islamabad - A high-level delegation from the UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) arrived here yesterday to step up efforts for prompt delivery of relief assistance so as to alleviate the sufferings of victims of the devastating floods.

Head of the RCA delegation Khamis Mohammed Al Suweidi told WAM that he would meet tomorrow with representatives of the National Disaster Management Authority, Pakistani Red Crescent and UN specialised agencies who are operating in the flood-hit regions.

He added that he would pay a field tour of the flood-affected areas to assess most needed basic food supplies and sheltering materials.

'Relief operations will be carried out in coordination with the UAE embassy in Islamabad, he said. According to him, the RCA has immediately swept into action after the flood hit Pakistan to put instructions of President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for delivery of urgent relief assistance into place. The RCA, he indicated, has completed preparations to implement a massive humanitarian programme to aid and relief internally displaced persons (IDPs) who are living under abject circumstances. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
