The UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) Programme on Afghanistan has so far cost the humanitarian body over Dh49 million, according to RCS officials. The programme began in the year 2001 on the orders of President H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in response to the suffering of the Afghan people. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the RCS also issued instructions to implement the presidential orders.



Accordingly, 31 relief flights were made to Afghanistan, which helped considerably in alleviating the suffering of the Afghan people, said Khalifa Nasser Al Suweidi, Chairman of the Board of Directors of RCS. The second phase of the programmes included consignment of relief items by sea to Pakistan to be distributed to refugee in Pakistan-Afghan border. Al Suweidi added that the RCS is currently running charity programme that include clinics, schools, and orphanages in Kabul. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
