“The UAE founded a unique approach to countering the consequences of humanitarian disasters and crises”, Sheikh Hamdan said in a statement on the Red Crescent Authority’s 30th anniversary which will be celebrated tomorrow Thursday.
He noted that the UAE’s humanitarian initiatives were launched upon directives and follow-up by Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and His Highness Gen. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
He called governments, organisations and individuals to take shoulder their responsibilities in the best possible way “as responsibility means solidarity for the protection of human dignity.” “The UAE took interest in generously giving for the weak and underprivileged people, and its leadership consolidated the foundations of the country’s humanitarian work,” he said.
“The people of the UAE look towards playing an active role to achieve the goals of RCA.” “This humanitarian legacy would not have been possible without the sincerity, faith and farsightedness of the late founding fathers of the nation’s humanitarian work,” he said.
“In the thirty years since its inception, RCA has took up the responsibility of conveying the UAE’s message of peace and love to all the suffering peoples of the world. I am completely confident that this march will go forward on the same path based on the same rich legacy of our founding fathers,” Sheikh Hamdan concluded.
