Red Crescent Authority (RCA) has sent contingency aid to Mauritania in line with the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of the RCA. The relief sent through UAE's diplomatic mission in Nouakchott included Dh.100000 and 60 tons of dates to be distributed during the month of Ramadan.

Acting Secretary General of RCA Dr. Saleh Al Thae said that the relief aid given by the Authority to Mauritania since 1994 totalled Dhs3.5 million. This included participation in the construction of mosque and health care centre and provision of food and clothing. RCA also participated in relief activities at the time of draught in Mauritania.

Over 315 tons of dates were shipped to Mauritania in years 2000 and 2001. RCA implemented a set of relief programmes for the rehabilitation of flood victims in 2002.
