UAE's Red Crescent Authority (UAERCA), in association with UNICEF, has launched a massive campaign for vaccination of women and children affected by floods in Pakistan.

Addressing a press conference held at the RCA headquarters to announce the launch, Secretary General of the RCA Mohamed Khalifa Al Qamzi said that the vaccination campaign is a continuation of UAE's humanitarian operations under the guidance of President H.H Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and H.H General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

The operations on ground are closely followed up by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative to the Western Region and the Chairman of the RCA, in an effort to alleviate the hardships brought about by the floods, which left over 20million people homeless.

The Qamzi said that a deal has been made with the UNICEF to begin implementation of a health campaign during which all women in the childbearing age will be immunised with two doses of tetanus vaccine and children between 6 months to 5 years with anti-measles vaccines.

The RCA is working on equipping a team of medics and paramedics to reinforce the medical mission on ground in Jacobabad as part of the efforts to alleviate the sufferings caused by one of the worst natural disasters the world has seen in recent history.– Emirates News Agency, WAM
