The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian Charity Establishment (MHCE) has sent 96 tonnes of relief aid to Madagascar which is hit by the tropical cyclone ‘Haruna'.

The establishment, which is planning to purchase more relief materials from the local market, has sent a relief plane to Madagascar which was battered by the cyclone and torrential rain which caused flooding.

Ibrahim Bu Melha, Adviser to the Ruler of Dubai for Cultural and Humanitarian Affairs, who is also Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the MHCE, said the cargo is valued at Dh1.5 million.

"The establishment is to dispatch a delegation to Madagascar in a six-hour flight to provide and manage the relief aid requested for the affected areas which are 1,200km off Tana, the capital.”

The relief supplies will be delivered to the affected people there in two days. "The cargo includes 10 tonnes of dry milk, three tonnes of fast food, 42 tonnes of tents, 18 tonnes of blankets, 20 tonnes of clothes, as well as 12 power generators and 15 water pumps.”

Bu Melha added the establishment's delegation will remain in Madagascar for seven to ten days to distribute the relief material. "They shall also study the situation there to determine the extra materials needed.” – Khaleej Times
