posted on 06/12/2001: 657 views


A UAE relief plane landed today at Kabul airport to be the first Arab-Islamic assistance to arrive in Afghanistan under the current critical situation. The relief aids, ordered by H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, President's wife, Chairwoman of the UAE Women's Federation and honorary Chairwoman of the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS), is loaded with medical supplies, foodstuff, winter clothes, blankets and school bags.



On board the plane was a high-level RCS team led by its Secretary General Sana Darwish Al Kutbi, who said the RCS' presence in Kabul underlined Sheikha Fatima's personal follow up and care of the population affected by events in Afghanistan, notably women and children. She said the team would distribute the relief materials to the needy people and tour health centres and orphanages to assess their needs. '' We will conduct a study on the condition of women and children in Afghanistan in order to draw plans for humanitarian projects especially in health sector,'' she said.



The RCS team and a UAE Foreign Ministry delegation met with Afghan caretaker Foreign Minister Abdullah Abdullah to review the situation in Afghanistan. Abdullah thanked the UAE for the RCS' humanitarian efforts in Afghanistan. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
