The UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, today said that it launched a fund raising campaign for the Afghan refugees since three days. Talking to the press here, Khalifa Nasir al-Suweidi, Society's Board Chairman, called upon the humanitarian organisations, companies and individual donors to contribute to the Afghan fund, noting that the Society had only Dh25 million in hand. He said that the first phase of the Society's work included building a refugee camp for 40,000 people provided with all the necessary service facilities at the Pakistan-Afghan border.



The camp will be provided with a field hospital, mosques, playgrounds, recreational areas, kitchens, bakeries and a graveyard. He added that the second phase would include an airlift of relief supplies of four aircrafts carrying total supplies of 150 tons to the Afghan refugees at the Iranian border. Suweidi said that the first plane loaded with 40 tons of supplies will leave tomorrow with an RCS delegation on board. He added that the fund raising campaign for the Afghan refugees will not affect the ongoing fund raising campaign for the Palestinian people.



The relief efforts for the Palestinian people was a sustained campaign with allocated projects, he said, adding that the Society was in the process of preparing the 7th planeload of supplies for Palestine. Suweidi asked donors to send their contributions to following account: Dubai Islamic Bank (5467640) and Abu Dhabi Islamic Bank (20000446). (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
