President H.H Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan has ordered the UAE Red Crescent Society to send urgent assistance to the Palestinians people who are living under appalling conditions of blockade, destruction and killings by Israeli army. "President Sheikh Zayed has instructed the RCS to focus and centre all its programmes at the moment on delivering urgent assistance to the Palestinians. Means of delivering aid to those facing hunger and lack of medicine should be explored " said Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the RCS. Sheikh Hamdan who chaired the RCS Board of Directors meeting here today said that President Sheikh Zayed had also ordered immediate implementation of his grant to sponsor 5,000 Palestinian orphans through the RCS. Sheikh Hamdan stressed the gravity of the situation in the occupied territories, and urged RCS officials to redouble efforts to send aid through Egypt or Jordan, in co-ordination with other humanitarian organisations. He pointed out that the RCS teams in the field have been purchasing relief items from the local markets in the occupied territories in order to assist the needy. Sheikh Hamdan urged local philanthropists in the UAE to continue their assistance to their Palestinian brethren through the RCS. (The Emirates News Agency, WAM)
