Yemen Sana'a - A delegation from the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) led by Dr. Saleh Musah Al Taei, Director of relief and Emergency Department, met today Mr. Peter, Gulf Representative of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC-RCS). During the meeting, he thanked the UAE for supporting and sustaining the poor and needy.



He said he had reported all track events and efforts of the UAE RCS to the IFRC-RCS in Geneva. The delegation also discussed with Dr. Mohammed Al Kabab, Chairman of the Yemen RCS, ways of cooperation between the two sides. During the meeting, Dr. Al Kabab praised the UAE for its role in helping the people of Yemen.



He cited the 21 surgery operations for eye patients done by the medical team at Hadibu Hospital in Suqatra island and the team's participation in the anti-malaria national campaign in Sana'a and other cities. They also visited the UNICEF headquarters in Sana'a, met some officials and briefed them about the RCS efforts on protecting children in and outside the UAE, including vaccinating a number of Pakistani children in the aftermath of the last earthquake and combating measles.
