RCS dispatches emergency aid to Tsunami Wave victims

posted on 28/12/2004: 575 views

The UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, has dispatched emergency relief assistance to the victims of the devastating earthquake and Tsunami tidal waves that hit many countries in the South East Asia. The gesture is the first step in a special relief programme designed to reach out to the victims of the world's strongest quake in forty years that has so far claimed the lives of over 19,000 people, injured tens of thousands and made millions homeless in Sri Lanka, India, Bangladesh and Indonesia.

According to RCS Secretary General, Sanaa Al Kitbi, the RCS was working to provide urgently the emergency requirements of the victims at the moment, adding that the RCS, in collaboration with the International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC, will sort out the type of assistance to be delivered and where to deliver them to the victims. She said the RCS had transferred money to Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Bangladesh for the purchasing of the relief supplies on the local markets for distribution to the victims.
