1500 families in Croix des Bouquets area, 3 kilometers from Port au Prince, capital of the quake-hit Haiti have received humanitarian relief assistance from the Red Crescent Authority (RCA) delegation.

Three trucks carried 45 tonnes of tents, blankets and food stuff to the families as part of RCA's efforts to improve the humanitarian conditions of Haiti's quake victims.

According to head of RCA's delegation to Haiti Humaid Al-Shamsi, the UAE's biggest charity and relief organization is set to increase its humanitarian supplies to Haitians in the coming days in line with its mission.

In the first days of the disaster, RCA focused its efforts on saving the lives of the injured victims and supporting the capabilities of hospitals and health centers, he said.

15000 injured people were moved to the neighboring Dominican Republic to receive treatment, according to the Dominican Health Ministry which revived medical supplies from RCA.

UAE's RCA is running humanitarian operations in the quake-struck Caribbean country upon directives by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The operations are being supported by H.H General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces and are followed up on by H.H Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, the Ruler's Representative to the Western Region, Chairman of RCA.

Earlier, RCA sent 145 tonnes of relief material to Haiti by air and via the Dominican Republic by land. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
