Must Read

The United Arab Emirates dispatched a plane to Benghazi International Airport in Libya, carrying 3 tonnes of critical meningitis and influenza vaccines for Hurricane Daniel relief. These vaccines, totaling 90,000 doses, will provide protection to 30,000 individuals and will be subsequently transported to the Libyan city of Derna in close collaboration with Libyan health authorities.
 
The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) delegation overseeing the mission is also working diligently with Libyan authorities to ensure the necessary refrigeration equipment is in place. These vaccines require storage at a chilled temperature of 8 degrees Celsius to guarantee their safety and effective distribution to the city’s residents.
 
This vaccination initiative aims to strengthen community immunity, with a particular focus on safeguarding the elderly and individuals with chronic illnesses. It forms part of the UAE’s ongoing humanitarian commitment to support those impacted by Hurricane Daniel.
 
Sultan Mohammed Al Shamsi, Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation for International Development Affairs, explained that the latest shipment of aid is part of the UAE’s humanitarian and relief efforts to support the Libyan people in their time of need after the devastating Hurricane Daniel.
