UAE sends 25 tonnes of urgent relief aid to Gaza


The UAE has dispatched a plane carrying 25 tonnes of food, medical and relief aid to Egypt's El Arish. It'll enter Gaza via the Rafah Border Crossing, in coordination with the UN World Food Programme, as part of the ‘Tarahum for Gaza’ campaign.

The ‘Tarahum for Gaza’ campaign was launched by the UAE in October to collect and prepare relief packages aimed at mitigating the severity of the ongoing Palestinian humanitarian crisis of the most vulnerable groups, especially children and women.

Sultan Al Shamsi, Assistant Minister for Development and International Organisations Affairs, stressed that an air bridge was organised to carry food, medical, and relief supplies to alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable groups, especially children.

He emphasised that the UAE’s efforts reflect the country’s principles and deep-rooted values of fraternity and its commitment to providing support for neighbouring countries in times of crisis.
