The UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) extended a total of Dh43 million in humanitarian aid to Palestine last year. A report by the UAE Friends Society, the RCS representative in Jerusalem, said that out of that amount the holy city and the West Bank's towns and villages received around Dh 20 million, while Gaza Strip's share was about Dh 23 million.



The report noted that development projects had got the lion's share of assistance last year with 42 per cent of the total amount or Dh 8.5 million. Seasonal programmes, such as Ramadan Iftar meals and sacrificial meat during Eid-al-Adha, took up 20 per cent or Dh 5 million of the total amount of assistance distributed by the RCS in Palestine in 2003.
