The UAE government has already assisted more than 1-million medical workers across the globe with over 1,000 tonnes of personal protective equipment (PPEs), medical and food aid to fight Covid-19.
“Since it’s very founding, the UAE has pursued bonds of friendly cooperation and solidarity with other countries, believing that nations must set aside their differences in favor of unity and the greater good of humankind. Today’s milestone of assisting 1 million healthcare workers affirms the UAE’s commitment to extending a hand of cooperation to the world, regardless of religion, race, or ideology of recipients,” Reem bint Ibrahim Al Hashemy, Minister of State for International Cooperation, told WAM.
She added that the pandemic was not clouded when the pandemic hit the world.
If anything, they doubled down on helping all those in need with what we can as we also manage our own challenges. With these values, respect for our common humanity, and desire to help those in need, the UAE further reasserts the vision of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Founding Father of the UAE, who believed in the collective responsibility of helping his fellow man,” she further added.
Since the start of the pandemic, the country has been a leader in global humanitarian efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
