UAE Red Crescent pledges to support the Reconstruction and Rehabilitation

posted on 14/12/2005: 622 views



Islamabad - The Head of the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) Dr Saleh Al-Ta'ei on Tuesday delivered medicines and medical aid supplies, weighing 20 tons, to Dr. Sajjad Ahmed, the Chief Executive of the Ayub Medical Complex Abbotabad. This is the 2nd consignment transported to the hospital within weeks. The RCS Chief held a meeting with the Chief Executive and members of the administration at the complex to discuss the requirements of the hospital in the next phase.



Sajjad Ahmed on the occasion said that the UAE Red Crescent has expanded its cooperation soon after the earthquake disaster and due to this cooperation, the International Federation of Red Cross and Crescent Societies established a two-hundred bed in the compound of the hospital.



Talking about the urgent requirements, Dr Sajjad said that the complex is facing logistic problems and urgently needs 10 ambulances. On the medical side, he said one M.R.I machine is required on urgent basis since the CT scan was damaged when a portion of the complex collapsed due to October 8th earthquake.



He said that on the long run a rehabilitation centre will be required in the hospital. Al-Ta'ei, who is heading the 4th delegation visiting Pakistan, said that a total of 17 aircraft have unloaded 700 tons of medicines and medical supplies at Chaklala Air Base with a total value of 4 million dirhams. He said medical supplies were distributed to main hospitals and mobile units.



"We do not consider the relief assistance as aid but a commitment with our brothers,” the UAE Red Crescent chief said. He assured that RCS will support the reconstruction and rehabilitation process. He met the officials and representatives of international aid groups and was told about the proposals for the rebuilding of hospitals, health centres and orphanages, etc.



He said the RCS is taking part in the vaccination drive for immunizing some 2,50,000 children in the quake-hit areas. A UAE Red Crescent medical team has already joined UNICEF in the first phase of vaccination program, he added. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
