WAM BAMAKO, 23rd July, 2013 WAM -- The UAE Embassy in the Senegalese capital, Dakar, has supervised the distribution of 1500 food baskets in Bamako, the capital of Mali, offered by the UAE Red Crescent Authority to help people displaced by recent events there.

The embassy handed over the aid packages to the Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Economy and Humanitarian action in Mali and the Secretary-General of the Malian Red Cross in the presence of a number of officials at the Ministry of Humanitarian Action Financial Department. The aid was immediately transferred to the displaced in the provinces of Mopti and Gao, enabling them to benefit from the initiative before the end of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The officials commended the initiatives of the UAE Red Crescent Authority, pointing out that such food aid has a special resonance during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
