ABU DHABI,Sep 13
(WAM) - The United Arab Emirates (UAE) will provide urgent humanitarian aid to quake-hit Mexico.
The noble move comes on directives of the President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and the follow-up of Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in Al Dhafra Region.
The aid will be delivered by the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) in response to the international calls for relief the ERC has received following the powerful quake which rocked the southern coast of Mexico and left 61 people killed, 200 wounded and more than 10,000 displaced, with in excess of 3 million suffering from the natural disaster.
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed said the UAE Presidentís directives come to translate the privileged relations between the two countries and out of his keenness to alleviate the suffering of the Mexican people.
ERC will work on delivering the aid in collaboration with the UAE Embassy in Mexico in order to ensure immediate provision to the stricken areas.
Sheikh Hamdan reiterated that the UAE humanitarian organisation will spare no efforts to continue standing by all those in need all over the world. (WAM)
