Abu Dhabi: The second phase of the ‘Tarahum for Gaza’ campaign, a humanitarian initiative dedicated to providing critical relief to Palestinians in the Gaza Strip devastated by recent hostilities, will take place on Oct 21 & 22.
In collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Community Development, this benevolent campaign embodies the UAE’s steadfast commitment to humanitarian outreach and the prompt delivery of aid to the suffering Palestinian communities. Esteemed organizations such as UAE Aid, Dubai Cares, and Emirates Red Crescent are graciously contributing to this noble cause.
The campaign is organizing 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.
These new events follow the campaign’s successful first day on Sunday, 15 October, at Abu Dhabi Ports Hall in Mina Zayed. More than 4,500 volunteers took part in the event. They prepared 13,000 relief packages, including food baskets and packages, for children, mothers, and women.
The ‘Tarahum for Gaza’ campaign highlights the UAE’s continuous humanitarian efforts to help those affected in the Gaza Strip. The UAE’s values are evident in its many initiatives intended to mitigate the humanitarian crisis faced by the Palestinian people, especially children and women.
The ‘Tarahum for Gaza’ campaign aims to mitigate the severity of the humanitarian conditions and alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable groups, especially children, who constitute nearly half of the Gaza Strip’s population. More than one million children are affected by the current conflict, and the campaign will work to meet children and mothers’ basic needs in addition to providing health supplies and general hygiene materials.
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.
Those wishing to volunteer to prepare relief packages can register through several volunteering platforms, including Volunteers Emirates, the Emirates Red Crescent Authority, the Dubai Volunteering Program, the Sharjah Volunteering Center, and Youm for Dubai. Emirates Red Crescent Authority centers throughout the country are also accepting in-kind donations and monetary donations. You can donate here
