posted on 16/04/2014: 1193 views



Manila: A UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) team is currently visiting Philippines to assess humanitarian needs of areas and population affected by Typhoon Haiyan within the UAE's US$ 10 million support and assistance programme, ordered by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The powerful tropical cyclone struck Philippines in November 2013, and devastated portions of the Southeast Asian country.

Fahad Abdul Rahman bin Sultan, Head of the RCA delegation, met separately with Gwendolyn T. Pang, Secretary General of Philippine Red Cross, and officials from the Department of Foreign Affairs, to discuss the situation on the ground and the possibility of implementing infrastructure, health, educational and services projects.

The RCA team was informed about the kind of recovery and rehabilitation projects needed to bring life to normalcy in the typhoon-struck regions.

The RCA team will tomorrow take a field tour of these regions to study the situation on the ground and determine the best mechanisms to carry out health and educational programmes. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
