UAE calls for boosting aid to poor countries

posted on 15/05/2002: 709 views


The UAE has called upon the international community to increase the volume of developmental aid allocated for developing countries, particularly the poorest countries, to enable them to fully adhere to the United Nations' obligations and recommendations concerning children's rights and improvement of their health, educational and social standards.



Addressing the United Nations Extraordinary Session on children, Sheikha Mohammed Saeed Al Mulla, Director of Child Development Centre at the Ministry of Education and Youth, sought the world attention towards children's problems. The UN session reviewed challenges confronting the children worldwide. The UAE representative lauded numerous charitable programmes and initiatives which are being adopted by the UAE in extending assistance to some poor countries subjected to environmental crisis, conflicts, or natural disasters.



The UAE has always been among the leading countries in contributing to building hospitals, medical centres and care centres for children and orphans in a number of these countries. It has also implemented some housing projects to provide suitable accommodation to thousands of homeless families in Palestine, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Somalia and other African countries.
