Mashhad, Oct. 16, 2001 (WAM) A UAE Red Crescent Society team led by its Chairman Khalifa Nasser Al Suwaidi, today toured an Afghan refugee camp located about 25km off Afghanistan's borders. He was accompanied by Secretary General of Iranian Red Crescent Society Gulam Reza Abadi and other officials. A special Iranian aircraft flew the team to the camp near Mashhad City where they were given a warm welcome by the Iranian society personnel. The camp management praised President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and the UAE people for their humanitarian works.



The manager of the camp said that a plan was underway to set up six camps near the borders where 200,000 refugees are expected. Dr. Saleh Al Taie, head of RCS's projects and Relief Section said the non-availability of water and power supplies near the camp is one of the most urgent problems faced by the camp management. Al Suwaidi promised to study these problems in order to solve them. WAM
