The chief of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) has praised the relentless efforts of Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince in fighting disease and hunger across the world.
David Beasley expressed his gratitude to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, in a Tweet.
"When WFP & the UAE join forces, we save lives,'' he added.
Thanks to my good friend @MohamedBinZayed. The UAE continues to break ground in the fight against #COVID19 & hunger around the world. Our new air bridge is a great example of coming together when we need it most. When @WFP & the UAE join forces, we save lives. @MoFAICUAE @WFP_AR https://t.co/UDbqGDaOdb— David Beasley (@WFPChief) May 8, 2020
The UAE recently allocated a fleet of three aircraft for the movement of life-saving cargo and emergency personnel until the end of the year.
It will help the WFP deliver essential health and humanitarian supplies to countries where they are needed most.
