The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment continues to distribute relief aid to over fifteen thousand among the Nepalis affected by the earthquake that hit their country. This came in the framework of its efforts that started a few days ago to provide the earthquake-affected with urgent humanitarian aid. This is to rescue thousands of people stuck due to the earthquake. A delegation from the Establishment headed by Saleh Zaher, Director of the Establishment, and Mohammed Al Hamadi from the Foreign Aid Department, arrived in Nepal to survey the disaster area on the ground and supervise the delivery and distribution of the Establishment’s aid to the affected Nepalis. In the last three days of the relief operations, the Establishment has succeeded in distributing necessary basic food items.
This was reported by his Excellency Ibrahim Bu Melha, Deputy Chairman of the Establishment’s Board of Trustees, who added that the Establishment’s efforts in giving relief to the affected Nepalis come as implementation of the directives of his Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates, may Allah protect him, and his brother his Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, may Allah protect him, and as ordered by his Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. Urgent relief was delivered to the earthquake-affected Nepalis to improve their humanitarian conditions under the status quo; guided by the UAE’s humanitarian and fraternal duty towards the allied states under such difficult circumstances.
Bu Melha made note that the Establishment’s delegation is working there in the field for the fourth day in a row. It implemented the urgent relief plan developed by the Establishment. Under this plan, the kind of urgent aid necessary for people there was determined. In cooperation and coordination with officials in the affected areas and Nepali volunteers, the Establishment’s team distributed relief parcels; each containing 30 kilos of rice, 10 kilos of lentil, 10 liters of cooking oil, 10 kilos of sugar, 2 kilos of salt and mineral salts, noodles, and four kilos of two Nepalese dishes as well as two blankets.
The delegation distributed the relief materials to 14 towns in Dharmasthali for 4 consecutive days. Yesterday’s distributions included Phutung and helped 3,500 families. The delegation then moved to Nepaltar where 600 families made use of the distributions. In Sindhupalchok, 200 families profited in addition to another 200 in Pokra. The district’s officials commended the Establishment for its aid and for the delegation who went to the affected areas.
