RCA sends more aid to Iraqis

posted on 10/07/2005: 781 views



The UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) conducted the third phase of a relief programme for people affected by the continuing turmoil in Al Anbar province of Iraq, 900km from Baghdad.

Thousands of food and clothing parcels were distributed to Iraqi families in Al Qaim city and areas of Al Krabila, Teena, Masharee'a and Al Ghabat. The RCA office in Baghdad has also extended humanitarian assistance to residents of Baghdad, Kirkuk, Arbil, Sulaimaniyia and Dahook.



Saleh Mohammad Al Mulla, RCA Deputy Secretary-General, said the programme was conducted as per instructions of Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, who is also RCA Chairman. He said the move was made to help thousands of families affected by the violence in Al Anbar province.



The RCA is closely following developments in Iraq and their impact on the population. It is receiving daily reports from its office in Baghdad. Based on these reports, programmes of humanitarian assistance are worked out. Despite the fact that the RCA extends assistance to the various Iraqi provinces, it has recently focussed on Al Anbar because of the appalling living and health conditions there.



Ali Bin Shumail Al Ka'abi, Director of the RCA office in Iraq, said officials toured the province to estimate the volume of assistance required to be extended to the affected population.

The office is preparing for the fourth phase of the relief programme. It has given the Baghdad-based Zayed Hospital material and medical equipment, including wheelchairs and beds. (The Gulf News)
