posted on 13/10/2001: 633 views

The UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, will soon dispatch four planeload of relief assistance to the Afghan refugees in Iran. In line with the directives of President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, has ordered that four plane-load of relief assistance, including food items, medicines and tents be dispatched quickly for distribution to the Afghan refugees in Iran, who are increasing in number as more refugees continue to move towards the Iranian border, fleeing the US air strikes on Afghanistan.

Distribution of the new relief assistance would be done by the RCS in collaboration with the United Nations High Commission on Refugees, UNHCR, and the Iranian Red Crescent Society, which, in appreciation of the UAE's contribution, said it would contribute immensely in alleviating the sufferings of the refugees. The RCS thanked its Iranian counterpart and the UNHCR for their cooperation in getting the relief supplies to the Afghan refugees. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
