The UAE's humanitarian arm Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has reportedly signed contracts to establish new health and educational projects worth $3.26m (AED 12m) in the Comoro Islands capital of Moroni.

According to state news agency, Wam, the contracts were signed by Obaid Rahmat Al Baloushi – who headed the ERC delegation visiting the Comoro Islands to launch a range of humanitarian initiatives – and companies implementing the projects.

The delegation, which included the UAE ambassador to the Comoro Islands Saeed Mohammed Saeed Murshid Al Miqbaly, visited ongoing projects, including a motherhood and childhood centre in Moheli Island worth $1.5m (AED 5.5m).

Three schools will be constructed in Anjoun Island at $544,500 (AED 2m), and the ERC will also oversee $1.6m (AED 6m) worth restoration of nine schools in Moroni.

Projects in the Comoros Islands also include the construction of a 500m2 water tank in the capital, and the refurbishing of a dialysis centre worth $136,135 (AED 500,000) funded by the proceeds of the "Ataya Charity Exhibition."

The ERC’s development projects are part of the Year of Tolerance, the ERC secretary-general Mohammed Ateeq Al Falahi said.
