A team of the UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) visited the flood-hit areas in Algeria to assess their basic needs of emergency relief supplies. Floods and mudslides have left at least 651 people dead, 100 missed and more than 60,000 homeless. The team was accompanied in the tour by UAE ambassador to Algeria Ahmed Al Za'abai and Assistant Secretary General of the Algerian Red Crescent Society (ARCS) Wahiba Zemirli. Dr. Hamdan Al Mazrouei, Assistant RCS Secretary General for Local Affairs, said the team had escorted a plane carrying 40 tonnes of relief aid to the flood victims. Al Mazrouei conveyed to Algerian officials condolences of UAE government and people and reiterated UAE's full support for Algeria in this plight, saying all energies and resources would be rallied to alleviate the impact of the devastating disaster. ' Some relief supplies will be bought from local market to save time and energy and to ensure swift distribution, he said. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
