UNHCR thanks Big Heart Foundation for its support for Syrian refugees

posted on 18/08/2016: 1865 views

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, UNHCR, has extended its sincere appreciation to The Big Heart Foundation, TBHF, under the patronage of H.H. Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, UNHCR Eminent Advocate and wife of the Ruler of Sharjah, for its indispensable support for Syrian refugees. Her contributions have spanned across the Middle East and North Africa, assisting thousands of families.

Lauding TBHF's unwavering support for Syrian refugees, Toby Harward, Head of Office in UNHCR Abu Dhabi, said, "We are grateful for The Big Heart Foundation's commitment to alleviating the suffering of Syrian refugees both in Jordan and Egypt."

The Big Heart Foundation announced that it will continue its support for Syrian refugees in Jordan, particularly those in the Zaatari refugee camp. In early 2016, TBHF announced donations valued at AED 3 million in support of refugees in Zaatari in order to establish a 24/7 medical clinic in the camp to address refugees' medical needs. TBHF's commitment also included a AED 500,000 donation for improved sanitation in order to combat the proliferation of disease, and to ensure hygienic standards for the 80,000 Syrian refugees living there.

"We are confident this donation will have a positive impact on the lives of refugees, as we have seen time and time again through Sheikha Jawaher's philanthropy and through The Big Heart Foundation," Harward added. - Emirates News Agency, WAM -
