UAE donates 100 tonnes of aid to S Sudan refugees in Uganda
UGANDA (19 Sep.)

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has donated more than 100 tonnes of
essential supplies to help South Sudanese refugees in desperate need in
northern Uganda.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister
and Ruler of Dubai, ordered a private plane to dispatch the supplies to
those fleeing conflict in South Sudan.

State news agency WAM said the flight was due to arrive in Entebbe Airport
on Sunday and that it was carrying sleeping mats, blankets, mosquito nets,
buckets and other essential items for refugees living along the Ugandan
border with South Sudan.

Princess Haya bint Hussein, the wife of Sheikh Mohammed and President of
Dubai’s International City for Humanitarian Services, said: “The UAE always
come to the forefront of international relief efforts in various
emergencies and crisis.”

The number of South Sudanese seeking safety and shelter in neighbouring
countries has crossed the one million mark, according to the UN refugee
agency.
