UAE sends new relief convoy for Swat Valley refugees

posted on 30/05/2009: 647 views



Islamabad - The UAE's Red Crescent Authority (RCA) on Friday said it is sending yet a new relief convoy to help out refugees who escaped the fighting in Swat Valley, Pakistan.



The recent humanitarian consignment due to move on Saturday to Swat Valley refugee camps is in line with directives from President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces and is being followed up on by H.H Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of RCA.



RCA's latest convoy is part of the second phase of RCA's humanitarian Swat Valley operation. RCA's trucks will carry tents, food stuff, electric fans and other relief materials to thousands of internally displaced persons (IDPs) at Resal Bor refugee camp, 150 kilometers north of the Pakistani capital of Islam Abad.



Coordination is already underway between RCA and Pakistan's Red Crescent to improve the humanitarian situation of refugees.



The first phase of RCA's Swat Valley operation was carried out last week. 300 tonnes of rice, wheat flour, oil, canned food, tents, blankets and other stuff were distributed to refugees at Shah Mansour where 13000 displaced families live in dire humanitarian conditions and scorching heat.



The latest reports say over 2.4 million people have been displaced in Swat Valley. More are expected to become refugees in the coming few days. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
