A visiting Sri Lankan minister has briefed a UAE charity agency of the requirements of tsunami and quake-hit areas in the southern Asian island country. The briefing was made during a meeting yesterday between Sri Lankan Minister of Environment and Natural Resources Abdul Hamad M. Faze and Salem Al Hahira, director of the Abu Dhabi-based Zayed Foundation for Charitable and Humanitarian Works.

They had talks on the aid the Foundation could render to Sri Lankan tsunami victims. Faze voiced his country's gratitude to the UAE under the leadership of President H.H. Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for its continued humanitarian assistance to Sri Lanka.

"The objective of my visit to the UAE and talks with officials of charity agencies here, namely the Red Crescent Society (RCS) and Zayed Foundation, is primarily to rationalize relief materials and ensure that they reach the affected areas," said the Sri Lankan minister.

Dhahiri said his Foundation would revise the amount of money allotted to Sri Lanka for use in a number of humanitarian projects as per the request of the latter. "We are going to reconsider our cash assistance at the request of the Sri Lankan side so that it can be directed to most affected regions," noted Dhahiri.

The Zayed Foundation for Charitable and Humanitarian Works has previously agreed with the Sri Lankan government to build an orphanage and 20 housing units in association with the RCS and Sri Lankan Muslim Women Committee. It has already started the construction of an orphanage and two medical centres in Indonesia to serve the displaced from the tsunami most affected region of Ache. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
