A great deal of public relief packages are announced in the holy month of Ramadan by the government of United Arab Emirates aimed at providing relief to the general public. One such initiative by the UAE authorities is to provide water to 5 million people. The initiative, known as UAE Suqia, will be implemented through digging wells, provision of water pumps and water purification equipment to the needy areas.
His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has launched the UAE Suqia Initiative to provide clean water to five million people worldwide.
The initiative will be implemented through digging wells, provision of water pumps and water purification equipment to the needy areas. The campaign will start in the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.
While launching the initiative, Shaikh Mohammed said that they receive this holy month with charitable initiatives to support underprivileged people. No doubt Emiratis are sons of the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who are always ready to support the needy people.
He further added that they will not stop launching humanitarian initiatives every year, since the UAE has an established charitable work. And they will continue following the legacy of the founding fathers.
Shaikh Mohammed presided over the first session of the Organising Committee of the Initiative at the Executive Office in the presence of Shaikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai
Shaikh Mohammed emphasised the importance of directing the committee to work in the areas, where water is scarce in coordination with competent international organisations, the Red Crescent Authority (RCA), and the UAE embassies abroad.
