posted on 27/05/2006: 694 views

On the directives of General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of UAE Red Crescent Society ordered provision of emergency humanitarian assistance to over 400 Iraqi families displaced from Baghdad to the Southern city of Mosul by the ongoing clashes.

Sheikh Hamdan also directed RCS to implement an ambitious humanitarian programme that will fulfil the needs of displaced Iraqis and help improve their conditions.

He also ordered speedy dispatch of aid materials to the people who fled their homes and who are facing difficulties. Khalifa Nasser Al Suweidi, Chairman of the RCS's Board of Directors, said that the society has immediately started to implement Sheikh Hamdan's orders and is prepared to offer a first-rate relief service to help the affected people, under direct supervision of the society's office in Iraq and in collaboration with the UAE embassy in Baghdad.

The aid materials include foodstuff, water, medical items, clothes and sheltering items, all to be purchased from local markets in Mosul. "The RCS is determined to provide more aid to the displaced families based on the reports received from its office manager there. We will spare no effort in helping our brothers and sisters in Iraq," Al Suweidi said.

He confirmed that RCS operations in Iraq will continue to alleviate suffering of the Iraqi people. "Iraq faces a challenging situation that requires provision of more assistance to ease the plight of the crisis-torn Iraqi families." (Emirates News Agency, WAM)
