A UAE Red Crescent Authority delegation will fly today to Jordan as part of a whirlwind tour which takes them too to Syria and Lebanon to inspect humanitarian situation at the Palestinian refugee camps there. Abdullah Mohammed Al Mahmoud, Director of RCA's Projects and Development and head of the delegation, said ' While in Jordan, the team will attend a UN regional workshop about enhancement of response mechanism to humanitarian cases.



To be organised on Monday by the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), the workshop will highlight key elements in regards to reforms to be introduced in mechanisms for emergency response to humanitarian situations and impact on the Middle East and North Africa, Iran and Afghanistan.



The team, he added, would tour Palestinian refugee's camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon to assess their needs and explore suitable projects to improve their living condition in coordination with UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East).



To alleviate suffering and severe living conditions of refugees, he said, Zakat funds offered by philanthropists in the UAE will be distributed to the neediest of them.



In Syria, foundation stone for a preparatory school for girls will be laid down at Sabina refugee's camp as part of the RCA's efforts to spread learning.



'These humanitarian assistance to the Palestinian refugees come under instructions given by President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and the continuous follow up by Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and RCA President, ‘he added.



Meanwhile, Khairi Al Oraidi, Ambassador of Palestine, paid tribute to the UAE for its continuous generous support in different health, housing and educational sectors for the Palestinian people. He also praised the RCA for its prompt delivery of assistance to those in need. 'The RCA's tour of Palestinian refugees camps in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon underlines the UAE leadership's sincere keenness to secure necessary requirements they need,' he affirmed.
