UAE's peace mission to war-torn Afghanistan

posted on 24/08/2011: 2440 views



The documentary Mission: Winds of Goodness is a 30-minute film on how the UAE military delivered humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, maintained security and supported social and economic development in the war-torn country.

The screening, which took place on Monday evening at the Majlis of General Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, at Al Bateen Palace, attracted more than 400 guests.

The event was attended by His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, Crown Prince of Bahrain Salman Bin Hamad Al Khalifa and many other dignitaries.

Brave individuals

The documentary, directed by Khalid Al Falasi, features UAE soldiers and medical staff who had served in Afghanistan.

It provides a behind-the-scenes look into the work of the UAE Armed Forces in Afghanistan and honours the brave individuals doing their duty for the country.

The film sheds light on the efforts of the UAE soldiers who provided humanitarian aid to the people of Afghanistan and also contributed to maintaining peace in an enemy environment while promoting social and economic development in remote locations.

Some members of the mission narrated their experiences in the task force and how dangerous it was to be in a remote region where you could expect death at any moment as you don't know your enemy.

The film showed how the UAE's armed forces defused landmines which were planted to prevent them from proceeding to extend assistance to the people of Afghanistan.

Now in its eighth year, the UAE mission primarily involves delivering humanitarian aid to the Afghan people, maintaining security, and supporting social and economic development in remote communities.

The film presents how the UAE Forces must rely on their courage, training, and most importantly each other, in order to carry out this important work under the most hostile and challenging circumstances.

The screening was followed by a panel discussion. – Gulf News
