RCS helps stranded Palestinian families in Iraq

posted on 17/05/2003: 822 views



UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) has extended US Dollar 125,000 in medical aid to stranded Palestinian families evicted from their homes in the Iraqi capital. An RCS delegation, presently in Baghdad, today visited the Haifa Health club's camp, where over 175 Palestinian families are taking refuge after being expelled from homes once rented to them by the overthrown Iraqi government. " The condition of the camp is extremely bad and is not originally set for living purposes," Saeed Al Mansouri, an RCS delegate, said. He pointed out that an agreement had been reached during the RCS visit with the Palestinian and Iraqi Red Crescent societies, whereby the RCS would meet all the camp's needs for medicines, foodstuff, air conditioners and tents.



Dr. Anwar Al Awaouda, Director of the Palestinian Red Crescent, said Palestinians living in Iraq were experiencing yet another tragedy of expulsion following the fall of Iraqi towns in the hands of the allied forces and spread of state of anarchy all over the country. He added that most of the over 175 Palestinian families were women, children and old men and that more than other 200 families were in the wait to join the camp. Awaouda paid tribute to President H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the RCS for the assistance rendered to them. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
