The UAE Foreign Aid Coordination Office (FACO) is appealing for emergency relief aid after a powerful earthquake and massive storms left hundreds dead in Indonesia and Philippines, respectively. Issued today in Abu Dhabi by HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi and President of FACO, the appeal seeks an urgent response from UAE-based donor organizations to deliver relief assistance to those affected by the natural disasters.

"The objective is to quickly reach the victims with much needed aid and to accelerate the resumption of normal life there following the recent natural disasters. The safety and well-being of those affected is a prime concern of the people and the Government of the UAE,” said HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed. "We call upon organizations in the UAE to act accordingly in response to the current situation. The UAE Foreign Aid Coordination Office is working with the relevant UAE-based organizations to assemble an urgent and effective response to the crisis.” FACO is a federal agency recently set up to support and coordinate UAE-based donor organizations that provide assistance for humanitarian activities and emergency relief worldwide.
