Over 17 million people worldwide benefit from MBRGI’s AED262million Humanitarian Aid and Relief in 2019

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) announced that its Humanitarian Aid and Relief projects and programmes benefitted over 17 million people across the world with a total expenditure of AED262 million in 2019. His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of MBRGI, said the Foundation is devoted to expanding the scope of humanitarian aid and relief to reach the largest number of beneficiaries. “The Foundation stems from a human-centric approach that strives to improve lives, foster the culture of hope, transform challenges into opportunities and invest in human capital, the nation’s most precious resource.”

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum added, “The UAE was established on the humanitarian principle of lending a helping hand to anyone in need across the world.”

He noted, “Making a difference in one person’s life can lead to a better future for an entire society.” He said that, “The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives has succeeded in transforming humanitarian work into an integrated system of giving that provides efficient and swift response to empower communities, therefore, strengthening the UAE’s position on the global humanitarian aid map.”

He stated, “Our mission of creating hope continues and our journey of giving persists as long as there’s need in the world. Through our humanitarian work, we aim to improve lives in every corner of earth.”

The MBRGI oversees more than 30 initiatives and entities that carry out hundreds of programmes, projects and campaigns in the five pillars of Humanitarian Aid and Relief, Healthcare and Disease Control, Spreading Education and Knowledge, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, and Empowering Communities.

As part of the Humanitarian Aid and Relief pillar, the MBRGI devotes its efforts to improving lives across the world and alleviating suffering to create stable, cohesive societies capable of overcoming economic, social and political challenges.

The six MBRGI entities that carry out projects and programmes in the Humanitarian Aid and Relief pillar are the International Humanitarian City (IHC), UAE Food Bank, the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment (MBRCH), UAE Water Aid Foundation (Suqia) and the Mohammed bin Rashid Global Center for Endowment Consultancy.

An integrated social system

His Excellency Ibrahim Mohammed Bu Melha, Advisor of the Ruler of Dubai for Cultural and Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees of MBRCH, said the Establishment has become one of the highly active organizations to transformed occasional humanitarian aid into a year-long system of work. “We are focused on developing sustainable programmes and projects transcend time-bound urgent aid to an integrated social support system.”

He noted that the establishment implements dozens of projects, programmes and initiatives under the umbrella of MBRGI and in collaboration with regional and global institutions. The active work has helped reach millions across the globe effectively.

He added that MBRGI’s humanitarian projects are committed to providing the required resources to enable vulnerable communities to lead decent lives and lift them out of poverty.

Clean water projects

His Excellency Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the UAE Water Aid Foundation (Suqia), said under the umbrella of MBRGI, Suqia continues its efforts to provide clean water for communities suffering from water scarcity and pollution.

Since its inception, Suqia has completed more than 1,000 sustainable water projects around the world that touched the lives of over 13 million people across 36 countries. Al Tayer noted, “Massive efforts have been achieved due to the unlimited support and directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to find permanent solutions to water shortages and improve the difficult living conditions of poor communities that face water scarcity and pollution.”

Al Tayer added that since 2019, Suqia has dug wells to provide clean drinking water and installed pumps, clean water distribution networks and purification stations. He pointed that the UAE is one of the first countries in the region that gives priority to the water scarcity issue, constantly exploring innovative and sustainable solutions through supporting research and launching awards that encourage innovation.
