(Dubai) – Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has launched the ‘U.A.E. Suqia” Initiative to provide clean water to five million people worldwide. The initiative will be implemented through digging wells, provision of water pumps and water purification equipment to the needy areas. The campaign will start in the beginning of the Holy Month of Ramadan.
While launching the Initiative, Sheikh Mohammed said, “As usual in the U.A.E., we receive this Holy Month with charitable initiatives to support underprivileged people. No doubt Emiratis are sons of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, and always ready to support the needy people.” The Vice President added, “We will not stop launching humanitarian initiatives every year, since the U.A.E. has an established charitable work. And we will continue following the legacy of the founding fathers.” “In our country, water is great blessing. Our ancestors had been deprived of water, thus they knew its value, and nowadays those specialized in water projects know that a huge part of our financial resources is allocated to water purposes,” he added.
Sheikh Mohammed presided over the first session of the Organizing Committee of the Initiative at the Executive Office in the presence of H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai.
