Barbara - A UAE plane loaded with 35 tons of relief aid has arrived in Barbara, Somalia on Friday, said the UAE's Red Crescent Authority (RCA).

Blankets, tents, clothes, flour, rice and other food stuff and will be distributed to Somalis as part of the UAE's brotherly obligations towards the people of Somalia, said RCA's acting deputy Secretary General for relief and projects Dr Saleh Mousa al-Ta'ae who heads RCA's delegation to Somalia.

The plane has been sent to Somalia upon directives from President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, crown prince of Abu Dhabi and deputy supreme commander of the UAE Armed Forces and is being followed up on by H.H Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed al-Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Chairman of RCA.

The said relief aid will be distributed to Somali victims of conflicts, famine, poverty and drought in coordination with Somalia Red Crescent.

This is the 17th plane to carry relief aid to the most vulnerable groups of people in the Horn of Africa country.

The UAE has so far provided Somalia with a total of AED 124 million in relief aid and funds for humanitarian projects.

Al-Ta'ae appealed to individual and corporate philanthropists to donate for the Somalia humanitarian and relief operations to help out victims of 4 consequent seasons of drought which destroyed crops denying 30% of Somalis of their major source of income. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
