BEIRUT, UAE Ambassador to Lebanon, Hamad Saeed Sultan Al Shamsi, has participated in the DAFA campaign launched in 2015 to help thousands of underprivileged families.

The Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, provided humanitarian assistance including food parcels, blankets and winter clothes for children.

Al Shamsi said that this humanitarian gesture is a continuation of previous and future projects, and that the UAE leadership does not hesitate in providing help and support, which it has prioritised in its foreign policy. The UAE has declared 2017 as the Year of Giving, confirming its pioneering vision in this field, ranking it the first place for the third year in a row in humanitarian work.

"Every time we participate in any activity, we have a sense of responsibility towards underprivileged families and we realize that we have a religious, moral and humanitarian duty to help them because they need a better life and our role is to relieve them," the ambassador concluded.
