UAE to dispatch urgent relief to Algerian flood-victims

posted on 06/10/2008: 699 views


The UAE will rush urgent relief to flood-hit population in Algeria. Living conditions of people have been deteriorating due to flash floods, which swept the southern Algerian oasis province of Ghardaia, killing 55 people, injuring hundreds of people and washing away more than 4000 houses and rendering their dwellers homeless.

Deputy Prime Minister and President of the Red Crescent Authority (RCA) H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan has directed the RCA to implement humanitarian programme to cater for basic needs of the flood-victims.

'Acting upon Sheikh Hamdan's directives, the RCA has immediately begun delivering relief supplies to the affected segments as part of a massive humanitarian programme that lives up to aspirations of the UAE leadership,' said Dr. Ali bin Abdullah Al Ka'abi, RCA Chairman.

He said the RCA had decided to purchase assistance from the local markets in Algeria to ensure swift delivery to the targeted population in coordination with the Algerian Red Crescent Society and UAE Embassy there.

'We are closely following the humanitarian situation in Algeria and its unfolding consequences on affected people........we will spare no effort to assist our brethrens in Algeria,' he affirmed. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
