UAE hosts world’s largest relief organisations: VP

(Dubai) – Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said the world will on 19th August mark the World Humanitarian Day, “and we are also observing the event as a humanitarian capital and the world’s largest donor of development assistance in proportion to its gross national income (GNI).”
“As we also mark this day, the refugee issue, namely refugees from Syria, remains the most pressing challenge. The UAE has so far offered AED2.6 billion in support of them and will continue to do so,” HH said on his Twitter account.
“The UAE hosts the largest pool of international humanitarian and relief organisations … we dedicated an integrated humanitarian city for them. Our humanitarian and relief organisations are operating in more than 70 countries,” he added.
Sheikh Mohammed affirmed that the humanitarian work is a common language of mercy among human beings, a language that does not see race, religion or identity and this is what characterises a human being and makes any people a civilised one.
