A 40-tonnes aid plane from the UAE Red Crescent Society flies today to Niger to offer humanitarian assistance to drought-hit regions. Saleh Mohammed Al Mulla, Deputy Secretary General for Relief and Projects, said the RCS was closely following the developments in Niger to try to ease suffering of the population there.



'Reports on humanitarian situation in Niger affirms that a real drought crisis is taking tolls of the poor population there, especially children and women,' he said, adding that a RCS team had visited Niger recently and assessed through field tours the magnitude of the crisis. He stressed that 'the humanitarian situation in Niger calls for more coordinated efforts and assistance.



He added the relief plane, ordered by Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, who is also RCS Chairman, contains the basic needs from foodstuff and baby milk to clothes. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
