RCA to send relief items to Syrian displaced people in Jordan

posted on 22/02/2012: 698 views



UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) will run a convoy of health, food, sheltering and heating supplies to the Syrian displaced people on the Jordanian -Syrian borders.

The convoy, which will set out from Jordan's capital Amman tomorrow, is part of the RCA's intensified efforts to ease humanitarian suffering of the Syrian displaced persons whose number was estimated by Jordanian authorities at 78,000 with the possibility of more to come within the few coming days.

Amidst the increasing influx, the RCA is working with its Jordanian partners to send in more assistance to meet the increasing requirements of the displaced persons who are facing severe cold weather.

A RCA team led by Hamad Saif Al Shamsi, Head of Al Ain Branch, met with the Jordanian Red Crescent officials to work out a mechanism for distributing relief materials through implementation of an agreed emergency action plan in areas which have not yet reached by relief agencies and seen arrival of new groups of displaced Syrians.

The RCA team met Dr. Mohammed Al Hadid, Chairman of Jordanian Red Crescent, in the attendance of Mohammed Babiker, Representative of Middle East and North Africa, International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), to draw a distribution plan built on a field survey conducted by a RCA aid workers who visited areas where Syrian displaced people are gathering. Studies available with Jordanian relief agencies will also be used in that respect. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
