BEIRUT: Hamad Sultan Saeed Al Shamsi, UAE Ambassador to Beirut, toured Minya and Sahel Akkar town in the Lebanese Republic, accompanied by Mouin Maroubi, Minister of State for Displaced Persons in Lebanon, and representatives of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, in Lebanon to distribute food to Syrian displaced people.

This follows a grant received from the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation as part of the “Emirati response to Syrian displaced persons campaign - Winter 2018” which began two weeks ago by the Humanitarian and Development Affairs Attache at the UAE Embassy in Beirut to help vulnerable, marginalised areas.

In his speech, Al Shamsi said that this aid confirms the strength of bilateral ties between the UAE and Lebanon and is aimed at enhancing the living conditions of the Syrian displaced persons, in implementation of the Year of Zayed initiative launched by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

“We realise the numerous burdens on Lebanon due to the Syrian displacement and we will continue providing humanitarian and development aid. We will coordinate with the Lebanese government to identify the priority projects that will reduce the suffering of Syrian displaced persons and the Lebanese community,” he added.
