posted on 26/12/2013: 1604 views



UNICEF yesterday praised the government of the UAE for its unwavering solidarity with the victims of the ongoing crisis in Syria, following the directives of the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and through the Emirates Red Crescent Authority (RCA).

Dr. Ibrahim El. Ziq, Gulf Area Representative, UNICEF said: "We would like to especially acknowledge Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler's Representative in the Western Region and Chairman of the RCA - one of UNICEF's long-standing humanitarian partners. We appreciate and acknowledge the value of their ongoing and immediate response to numerous humanitarian relief campaigns worldwide. For Syria in particular, their tireless campaigning and support has no doubt improved conditions for millions of children and their families who are suffering as a result of this terrible conflict." In addition, in response to the declared polio outbreak last month in the Middle East region, the RCA made a significant financial contribution to UNICEF, enabling procurement of 1.6 million doses of the Oral Polio Vaccine to immunise children under the age of 5 in Syria against Polio.

Dr El. Ziq added: "We would like to take this opportunity to thank both the government of the UAE and the RCA for their continuous support to children worldwide". - Emirates News Agency, WAM
