Save the Children praises UAE Compassion campaign

posted on 11/01/2015: 4982 views



Save the Children, an international non-governmental organisation, has praised UAE for the Compassion campaign (Tarahamu), which is launched to alleviate the suffering of people in the Levant affected Storm Huda, following the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

"We welcome and greatly admire the UAE's efforts. The needs of more than three million Syrian refugees and even more in-side Syria are tremendous and a lot more needs to be done with funding relief, resettling refugees in richer countries and ending the conflict diplomatically. Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Egypt and Iraq cannot be left alone to face this unprecedented crisis," Roger Hearn, Save the Children's Middle East Regional Director told Khaleej Times.

Save the Children (STC), that promotes children's rights, provides relief and helps support children in developing countries, and other aid agencies in the Middle East are trying to help vulnerable families and ensure they do not go through this alone. For many refugees, this is now their fourth winter without a home.

"We welcome the move and call on other donors to step up their aid," he said. Save the Children is on the ground in all the affected countries including inside Syria, where an estimated seven million people are internally dis-placed, helping to protect children from the worst effects of this storm. – Emirates News Agency, WAM - http://www.wam.ae/en/news/emirates/1395274874973.html
