U.A.E. Water Aid campaign kicks off

Every 21 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. As little as Dh25 from you can help reverse this. The U.A.E. aims to help prevent deaths caused by unsafe drinking water through a nationwide campaign called the U.A.E. Water Aid (U.A.E. Suquia) launched.
His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the U.A.E. and Ruler of Dubai, launched the campaign coinciding with Ramadan to give more than five million people worldwide access to fresh drinking water. Emirates Red Crescent will implement the project in areas badly in need of water so they can have their own wells, water pumps, and water purification equipment.
“We are determined to plant a seed of goodness in every place around the world, as the legacy of the U.A.E. to humanity,” Sheikh Mohammad tweeted about the campaign last week.
”Charitable initiatives during Ramadan remind us that the U.A.E. was built upon the eternal principle of doing good in the world,” his other tweet read.
Preparatory work for the digging of wells started on Saturday in 10 countries, namely, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Niger, Somalia, Ghana, Sudan, Indonesia, Togo, and Iraq, according to Mohammad Abdullah Al Haj Al Zarouni, head of the Emirates Red Crescent’s Dubai branch.
