Dubai charity team in Afghanistan

posted on 12/11/2001: 1243 views


A high-level delegation led by Ibrahim Mohammed Bu Melha, Dubai Public Prosecutor and Deputy Chairman of the Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation in Dubai, arrived yesterday at the refugee camp set up by the Foundation in Spin Boldak in Afghanistan. Bu Melha was received at Quetta Airport by high government officials, the Foundation's representative, Abdul Latif Al Banna, and Sardar Faizullah Khan, head of the Nourzai tribe in Chaman. Bu Melha said that it was the third planeload of relief goods and that two more planes carrying relief goods would arrive in Quetta during the next two days. He noted that he had come personally to visit the camp in order to get first-hand knowledge about the progress made at the camp. He hoped that the situation would improve soon and that the suffering Afghans will have some peace in their country. He noted that the relief campaign had already been speeded up as the Foundation was trying to provide the refugees with all the necessities of life. The Mohammed bin Rashid Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation was the first to be allowed by the Afghan authorities to set up camps inside Afghanistan. The Foundation's first camp, which comprises 1,200 tents, is the best camp in Afghanistan as it is well planned and is ideally located outside the town of Spin Boldak. Some 10,000 refugees have already taken refuge in this camp within the last one-week. Work on this camp was completed in the unbelievably short span of 11 days. The Foundation has already provided the refugees with food, warm clothes and blankets, in addition to setting up a field clinic, a mosque and water tanks. Work on the second camp started on Saturday and around 500 tents were set up in just one day. Some 5,000 refugees have already taken shelter in this camp. Another camp – which will accommodate some 10,000 more refugees who are expected to reach here in the coming days - will be set up this week. Initially, the Foundation plans to manage these camps and to continue its relief operation for one year. (The Gulf News)
