DUBAI: Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Development Conference and Exhibition – DIHAD, in cooperation with the UAE Red Crescent Authority and the support of the UAE Embassy in Jordan, launched earlier a humanitarian initiative to support the Syrian refugees in the Emirati- Jordanian Refugee camp ‘Mrajeeb Al Fhood’ in Zarqa Governorate, near the Jordanian capital, Amman. The campaign involved providing and distributing a total of 2,400 school bags, stationery and other essential educational supplies for the students of the camp. The initiative aims at giving a hand to the Syrian refugee children and bringing a smile to their faces, by providing the necessary school supplies before the start of the new academic year.

The DIHAD delegation, headed by Dr Abdul Salam Al Madani, Executive Chairman of DIHAD, was received by Mohammed Mubarak Al Mansouri, Camp Director, where they took a tour of the camp and were briefed about the different facilities provided in the camp such as clinics, a hospital, school, library amongst others and they had a closer look into the refugees’ daily lives.

“As DIHAD is considered the region’s sole humanitarian voice, and a global forum that addresses many issues facing the world; our visit to the Emirati- Jordanian Refugee Camp ‘Mrajeeb Al Fhood’ was a ray of hope to our brothers and children of the Syrian refugees who had to leave their home due to the ongoing Syrian conflict. We also aim through this visit to give a hand to all the people who are sparing no efforts to provide the best services for the refugees in the camp under the guidance of the UAE wise leadership.” said Dr Abdul Salam Al Madani the Executive Chairman of DIHAD.

Commenting on the quality of services provided in the camp, Dr Al Madani said: “I have visited many international camps in many countries, but the level and quality of services provided at the Emirati-Jordanian Refugee Camp ‘Mrajeeb Al Fhood’ was beyond expectations and it is a source of pride for the UAE as a whole. The services cover different fields ranging from education and health to even professional services like a sewing workshop and others, which would help the camp residents to live a somehow normal life.”

It is worth mentioning that DIHAD Conference and Exhibition is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, from the 12th to the 14th of March, 2019 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
