(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) The Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation continued to carry out the largest health project of its kind in the Middle East through immunisation of Palestinian children in the West Bank and Gaza Strip against meningitis, pneumonia and hepatitis.

Salem Obaid Al Dhahiri, Director-General of the foundation said that the ambitious health programme, which came under the guidance of Shaikh Nahyan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of the foundation, at a cost over 9 million (equivalent to Dh33 million) targets immunisation of 170,000 Palestinian children.

The project, which started in September last year, will be completed by 2013 in three phases, Al Dhahiri added.

The major health project is based on an agreement between the foundation and the Palestinian Ministry of Health, and is assisted by the US-based Rostropovich-Vishnevskaya Foundation (RVF) that supports programmes to improve the health of children worldwide.

"The unique project is the first of its kind in Palestine as well as the entire Middle East. Our children and their parents are so grateful to Zayed Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation for this generous gesture", Palestinian Minister of Health Dr Fathi Abu Maghli said.

He thanked the UAE, its leadership and the people for the great humanitarian help that will protect the Palestinian children against life-threatening diseases.
