UAE RCS sends aid to Benin

posted on 05/06/2002: 726 views


The UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, has dispatched by sea 80 tons of relief assistance, including food items and clothing to the Republic of Benin for distribution to the poor and the needy in that West African country. This brings to Dh700, 000 the total cost of relief assistance sent to Benin by the RCS in recent years. The RCS will soon send another 80 tons of food items to Yemen's Hadramout region for distribution to the victims of the recent flood in the region, and another 70 tons of food items and clothing to victims of famine and epidemic diseases in Somalia. Relief assistance so far distributed in Somalia by the RCS now stands at a total cost of DH2.5million. Meanwhile the RCS has donated a bus to a school for the handicapped in Algeria. UAE Ambassador to Algeria, Hamad Saeed Hamad Al Za'abi, who presented the bus to the school on behalf of the organisation, said that the gesture is part of a bilateral cooperation between the two fraternal countries.
