Rabat, Oct. 27 (MAP) - The Moroccan Red Crescent (French acronym CMR) will send relief to the flood-stricken populations of the northeastern province of Nador, following the unprecedented rains that hit the region over the weekend.

The aids to be mobilized consist in 40 tents, 400 blankets, food-supplies worth some $ 2,100, cooking kits as well as hygiene products.
