UAE reaches out to the needy once again: UAE daily

Abu Dhabi (WAM) A major UAE Arabic daily today said that the tragic situation of the Afghan refugees is a human catastrophe, which demands from all Muslims a rush to their help. 'The UAE has foreseen the size of the danger awaiting these innocent Afghans since the beginning of the crisis, which made President H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to dispatch urgent relief supplies to the Afghan refugees, who are fleeing their country only to meet another sad fate,' commented the Abu Dhabi-based 'Al Ittihad'.

The paper said that the UAE Red Crescent Society, RCS, was the first charity organisation from Arab and Islamic countries to reach out to the refugees, by providing them food, medicine and tents to meet the noble humanitarian directives of the UAE leadership. This, the paper said, had made one of the refugees to make a touching statement to the UAE delegation by telling them, 'You are the first delegation from the Islamic world to visit us and to familiarise yourselves with our situation. We are looking forward to assistance from our Muslim brothers in this difficult situation which you yourselves can see without any comment.'

The paper said that the announcement made yesterday by Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the RCS, that the RCS had decided to sponsor 40,000 Afghan refugees by meeting all their basic demands, including food, shelter and healthcare, marks another first for the UAE in the field of humanitarian services. 'Here once again is the UAE taking the lead in reaching out to the Afghan refugees in a difficult situation, after taking the first step to help the Serbs and ethnic Albanian, who fled the destructive war in Kosovo, providing the Kosovan refugees shelter, food and healthcare up to date,' the paper said, adding that the UAE forces continue to provide security and stability in the area of their assignment in Kosovo up to date. The paper said that the UAE continue to reach out to all those in need without discriminating against any race, creed or colour. This, the paper added, had won the country great respect worldwide, making the International Committee of the Red Cross, ICRC, and the Federation of the Red Crescent Society to make Abu Dhabi their regional preparation centre from where they will direct their relief assistance operations to the Afghan refugees.

The paper pointed out that Sheikh Hamdan had pledged the total support of the RCS for the preparation centre, whose establishment in the country represents an international recognition to the efforts of the UAE in the field of humanitarian and charity works. The paper praised the UAE for its continuous support for the needy worldwide. 'The UAE had established itself as a role model in the field of humanitarian and charity works. It has reached out to the needy in Bosnia Herzegovina, Chechnya, Palestine, Somalia, and today the UAE is reaching out to our brothers in Afghanistan so that they can overcome the difficult situation they are going through now,' the paper concluded.
