posted on 21/08/2015: 808 views

HARGEISA: The Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Humanitarian Foundation, KZHF, has concluded its project of purchasing relief materials from the Somali local market in Hargesia, which had been implemented under the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to provide necessary assistance to the Somali people.

An official source in the foundation said that they had signed a contract with a number of local companies to buy hundreds of tons of various relief items to start distributing them as soon as possible to families affected by drought.

Dr. Saad Ali Shire, Minister of Planning and Development in Somaliland, expressed his thanks and appreciation to the wise leadership of the UAE for its aid and guidance directed at the rescue of Somali people, and its stand with him in adversity, valuing the efforts of the Khalifa Foundation for its humanitarian actions, and it's support for Somali people in various fields.

According a statement made to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, Dr. Saad expressed the joy of the population of Hargeisa city, and other regions, for this humanitarian aid to the Somali people, as he said you will know your friends in times of need, which, he said, applies to United Arab Emirates which responded as soon as possible to provide assistance to those in need.

He emphasised the importance of speed in helping the families, especially with the lack of rain which has affected the farmers, resulting in the decline of production which could possibly increase poverty levels and the suffering of the Somali people.

He added that the inhabitants of the areas affected by the drought are suffering severe difficulties in life, while the officials responsible for distributing the aid are working with the help of the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation in order to save lives by providing relief to the needy, as well as the rehabilitation of the population and resettling them in agricultural areas.

The foundation will also work on development and the reconstruction in the region via the drilling of wells, the creation of dams and the establishment of development projects, as well as helping farmers to increase production in order to hopefully stabilise the population in their villages.
