The UAE Water Aid Foundation (Suqia), under the umbrella of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, will participate in the 13th Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Development Conference and Exhibition (DIHAD), being organised at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre from 21st-23rd March 2016, under the patronage of Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Suqia's participation in the conference is part of a wider effort to promote the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Water Award to government organisations and stakeholders. The Award will receive applications on 22 March, coinciding with World Water Day.

"The UAE's wise government supports international humanitarian work. Suqia's participation in DIHAD supports efforts to achieve the directives of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, to promote the UAE's position globally and participate in initiatives and humanitarian aid to improve the living conditions of poor and affected communities in various countries, and help achieve sustainable development," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the UAE Water Aid Foundation.

"The UAE ranks as the world's largest donor of official development aid based on international statistics. Through our participation today, we hope to unify the efforts of government and international organisations to share humanitarian responsibilities and ensure that aid is an a genuine characteristic of the UAE," added Al Tayer.

"In cooperation with the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charity and Humanitarian Establishment, Suqia has implemented 10 projects to provide clean drinking water in Somalia, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Ghana, and Benin. These projects have helped over 60,000 people. Suqia provides relief assistance to Yemen in cooperation with the Ministry of Development and International Cooperation, who have stated that this has helped 1,087,500 people. In the UAE, a number of campaigns were launched to distribute water to Ramadan tents and mosques in collaboration with nine local associations and charities in the UAE. 100,000 people benefited from this during the Holy Month of Ramadan," said Mohammed Abdulkareem Al Shamsi, Acting Executive Director of the UAE Water Aid Foundation. – Emirates News Agency, WAM -
