A medical and relief delegation sent by the UAE Red Crescent Authority (RCA) left for Pakistan to reinforce distribution of relief aid and provide medical care for those affected by the floods that devastated the country.

The volunteer team, consisting of medics and Paramedics will join the mobile humanitarian hospital of UAE currently making field visits in various villages and towns in Pakistan.

Another RCA team will leave for Pakistan on Monday to join the vaccination campaign underway in Pakistani villages as per an agreement signed between UAE RCA and the UNICEF. The project aims to immunise women of childbearing age with two doses of vaccine against tetanus and children below six years against measles and polio. The vaccination campaign funded by the Red Crescent is the second of its kind carried out in collaboration with UNICEF and the first phase targeted 625 thousand women and children in Pakistan. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
