Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Western Region and Chairman of the Red Crescent Authority (RCA) has stressed the UAE's commitment in strengthening the role of regional and international humanitarian organisations in their efforts to alleviate the sufferings of the victims of poverty and hunger around the world.

The UAE, under the leadership of the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, as well as the support from General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, is keen to improve the living conditions of the poor around the world, he added.

He also stressed the need to unify efforts and partnerships between the International Red Crescent and the Red Cross to meet the challenges in the humanitarian arena brought about by the economic, social and climatic changes.

In a statement marking the conclusion of the Statutory meetings of the International Red Crescent and Red Cross Movement in the Swiss capital, Geneva, that was participated by a high-level delegation from UAE Red Crescent, Sheikh Hamdan said that the UAE strongly supports the internationalist approach that seeks to revitalise human values and standards developed by the United Nations to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.

In this context, Sheikh Hamdan emphasised that the UAE has fulfilled all its obligations to promote human development efforts in poor countries and regions. He also stressed that the UAE will sustain its policy and approach as a donor of aid in all situations and circumstances and will not give up on the responsibility placed on it.

He called on the international community to fulfil its obligations to humanitarian organisations working to reduce poverty in the face of a rising number of people suffering from starvation in the world, that has exceeded one billion, according to latest statistics documented by the UN.

Sheikh Hamdan stressed that to support the capabilities of humanitarian organisations means strengthening of their efforts and living up to its programmes as well as helping to develop mechanisms to address the consequences of humanitarian crises and 
disasters. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
