The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) signed a Dh150 million($41m) agreement with the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) to rebuild and reconstruct the Gaza Sector.
Shaikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler’s Representative in the Western Region and President of the ERC, attended the signing of the agreement.
He reiterated the UAE’s fundamental and historical commitment to standing by the Palestinian people and supporting their humanitarian issues.
The agreement was signed by Dr Hamdan Musallam Al Mazroui, Chairman of the ERC, and Peter Ford, Representative of the Commissioner-General of the UNRWA.
“The UAE’s leadership and people are following the painful events and what is happening in Gaza with deep sorrow and hence the wise leadership has spared no effort to harness and mobilise all the potential to support the Palestinian brethren and mobilisation to stand by their side and help them overcome the plight without reminding them of favours,” Shaikh Hamdan said.
