A ship carrying 600 tons of humanitarian assistance will sail to Pakistan as part of a Red Crescent Authority aid flotila to relieve flood victims in Pakistan.

Humiad Al Shamsi, Head of Relief and Emergency, RCA, said the 600 tons of foodstuff, medicines and covers were donated by philanthropists in the UAE during the recent nationwide fund-raising campaign organised by the RCA under the slogan 'Your Help'.

'The ship will set sail to Karachi within a couple of days and is expected to reach Pakistan in ten days,' he said.

The humanitarian assistance, he added will be distributed to affected population in the Sindh and Khyber regions.

A RCA team will fly to Pakistan to join the aid workers on the ground in supervising the delivery of the assistance.

Six planeload of more than 200 tons of relief and medical supplies were given to people of the two regions in recent months. â€" Emirates News Agency, WAM
