Saloom - Under the directives of UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE has launched a relief programme to alleviate the suffering of the brotherly Libyan people.

In this context, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charity and Humanitarian Establishment has, under the instructions of Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, dispatched relief and medical supplies to ease the hardship the Libyans are undergoing in these difficult times.

Ibrahim Bumelha, Deputy Secretary General of the Establishment, told WAM in Cairo that a convoy of ten fully equipped ambulances and ten trucks loaded with 330 tons of food items had been delivered to Libyan relief agencies in Massad city for distribution to hospitals and affected people.

'The convoy was the first the Establishment has sent to Libya and will be followed by others in implementation of Sheikh Mohammed's instructions for assisting the brotherly Libyan people,'he added.

UAE Ambassador in Cairo Mohammed bin Nakhira Al Dhahiri said the UAE Embassy had supervised the process of purchasing the aid from the local Egyptian markets to ensure swift delivery to Libya as soon as possible.

The UAE Consul General Dr. Rashid Al Afri has escorted the convoy from Cairo to the Egyptian-Libyan borders and coordinated with the Egyptian authorities to ensure the safe arrival of the convoy to the Saloom checkpoint at the Libyan side. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
