The Tarahum - for Gaza campaign continues as part of the UAE’s ongoing efforts to provide a helping hand to the brotherly Palestinian people.

The campaign will organize new events on Thursday, November 9, at the Emirates Hospitality Hall in Ajman, and on Sunday, November 12, at the Abu Dhabi Ports Hall in Mina Zayed, under the supervision of the Emirates Red Crescent Authority, from 9am to 2pm.

These events keep pace with the popular momentum and the great demand from all segments of society in the country to contribute to the UAE’s humanitarian efforts to help those affected in the Gaza Strip, in an embodiment of the values of cooperation and human solidarity that constitute basic pillars in the UAE.

The campaign is supervised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Emirates Red Crescent Authority and the World Food Programme, and in coordination with the Ministry of Community Development and with the participation of 20 charitable and humanitarian institutions to support and provide relief to the brotherly Palestinian people and alleviate the severity of the humanitarian crisis they face, especially the most vulnerable groups, especially children and women.

On the other hand, 8 planes were sent carrying more than 200 tonnes of food, medical and relief aid, which was collected in the “Compassion for Gaza” campaign, and operations to bring aid into the Gaza Strip and distribute it to the beneficiaries have begun in cooperation with the World Food Programme.

It should be noted that, in continuation of the UAE’s continuous efforts to provide relief to the brotherly Palestinian people, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, directed the launch of “The Gallant Knight 3” Operation, which includes establishing an integrated field hospital inside the Gaza Strip to provide medical support.

Sheikh Mohamed also directed that a thousand Palestinian children, accompanied by their families, from the Gaza Strip be treated in hospitals in the UAE, and that all types of medical and health care they need be provided, until they recover and return.

The humanitarian and charitable bodies and institutions accredited in the country continue to receive donations at their centers and through their websites.

Those wishing to volunteer or provide assistance and donations can find out more information on social media pages and the websites of charitable and humanitarian organizations
