posted on 21/10/2012: 1737 views



United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) has credited UAE's leading role and local, regional and international initiatives regarding children's rights, well-being and welfare.

Dr Ibrahim El-Ziq, UNICEF Representative to the Gulf, said the international children agency is deeply committed to its constructive partnership with the UAE and its government and non-government organisations in sustainable development and programmes for underprivileged children across the world.

UNICEF, he said during UNICEF Gulf's participation in a ceremony to mark the establishment of UNICEF on 24 October 1945, had high hopes on the UAE leadership's generous support for UN humanitarian and relief initiatives.

The UAE, he acknowledged, had always been on the forefront in showing commitment to supporting international humanitarian initiatives. He added that UNICEF was looking forward for expanding its partnership with the UAE to deliver urgent assistance to refugee Syrian children and poor children in Pakistan and Afghanistan.

International reports estimate UAE generous humanitarian and development assistance over the last 40 years at US$48.8 billion. The UAE is one among three key donors contributing 90% of total international humanitarian assistance that worth US$297.9 billion, according to the International Assistance Group.

The Group says that UAE government and non-government agencies had offered US$2.1 billion in foreign aid to 128 countries in 2011.

The UNICEF representative noted the marked qualitative progress in the health and education of children in the UAE over the last two decades. According to him, the UAE was among the first countries in the region to introduce child protection law and national strategy for advancement of women and children.

He said that H.H Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairperson of the UAE General Women's Union (GWU) and of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, had adopted the UNICEFs Multiple Indicator Cluster Survey (MICS) as part of her commitment to advance role of family and woman in local community. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
