The campaign aims to mitigate the severity of the humanitarian conditions with relief packages

Emirates Red Crescent has launched ‘Tarahum – for Gaza’ campaign to provide relief to Palestinians affected by the war in the Gaza Strip.

It is continuing in line with the UAE’s approach to humanitarianism based on solidarity and cooperation.

The campaign is organising events on Saturday, 21 October in Dubai and on Sunday, 22 October in Abu Dhabi and Sharjah. 

The events aim to prepare 25,000 relief packages with the support of volunteers from across the UAE, including citizens and residents, in addition to many public and private institutions.

It aims to mitigate the severity of the humanitarian conditions and alleviate the suffering of vulnerable groups, especially children, who constitute nearly half of the Gaza Strip’s population.

The campaign is supervised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with the Emirates Red Crescent Authority and the World Food Programme, and in coordination with the Ministry of Community Development. 20 relief and humanitarian institutions are participating.

H.H. Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, chairperson of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority and Member of the Dubai Council and Her Excellency Hessa bint Essa Buhumaid, Director General of Dubai’s Community Development Authority also participated in the campaign.

ERC’s campaign has also been joined by various companies in the private sector to support and collect aid for those who are affected in the region.
