Abu Dhabi, 13 March 2006--The UAE Red Crescent Society (RCS) recently sent three 20ft containers of foodstuff to the drought affected people of Somaliland, according to the Somaliland Red Crescent Representative in the UAE.

Ms. Safia Yousef Al Hashimi told Awdalnews Network she would like to convey the gratitude of the Somaliland government and people to the UAE for the assistance.

She said that the food consisting of grains, children milk, dates and sugar and other items was will soon reach the port of Berbera.

In a letter to its representative in Mogadishu, Mohammed Abdulla Hussein (Food Cadde), the RCS said that other foodstuff destined for Somalia would also be routed through Berbera due to the lack of shipping lines to Kismayu and Merca.

Mr. Hussein, who attended the UAE Society's meeting on Somalia last week, left for Somaliland to supervise the distribution of the shipment and to seek Somaliland's approval for other shipments to Somalia to be channeled through Berbera.

Somaliland's Interior Minister Ismail Adan, who was in Dubai recently, was also quoted as welcoming the RCS decision to use the port of Berbera for relief assistance shipments to Somalia. He also said that UN relief organizations conveyed to the Somaliland government their intention to use the port of Berbera for their relief operations to Horn of Africa.
