The United Arab Emirates' Red Crescent Authority (RCA) has said its overseas humanitarian and charity operations from February to March 2008 reached Dh52.1 million (around US$14,1 million). Dh16,572 million were pumped by the UAE's largest humanitarian agency into charity and development projects around the world while its relief operations reached AED 9,645 and orphan care and sponsorship programmes (in the UAE and overseas) received around Dh14 millions.

RCA has made a giant jump in providing emergency relief aid to affected areas during the said period, RCA's secretary general Dr Saleh Al-Taei' said adding that the number of beneficiaries of orphan care and sponsorship programmes was significantly increased and humanitarian support was actively mobilized for their causes.

RCA's humanitarian and relief operations in Iraq, occupied Palestinian Territories (oPT), Afghanistan Somalia and other drought-hit countries in the Horn of Africa accounted for a large percentage of the agency's efforts during the said period. Other beneficiary countries where humanitarian and relief agencies received RCA's support include Yemen, Kenya, Eretria, Morocco, Djibouti, Indonesia, Tajikistan, Madagascar, Lebanon, China and Kyrgizia, Syria and Albania. RCA, Al-Taei' added, has also provided direct financial support to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). – Emirates News Agency, WAM
