Over 200,000 Lebanese, as well as Syrian and Palestinian refugees benefited from an Emirati Ramadan Iftar project in Lebanon.
Coinciding with the Year of Tolerance, the project was launched during Ramadan 1440 by several Emirati charity organisations.
The Ramadan project, which was supervised by the UAE Embassy’s Humanitarian and Development Affairs Attache, was supported by the Zayed Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation, the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment, the Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, Sharjah Charity International, Human Appeal International and the Dar Al Ber Society.
It also involved supporting orphans and the distribution of food and dates, Zakat Al Fitr and Eid Al Fitr clothes, as well as the organising of daily mass iftars, in cooperation with many Lebanese authorities.
Hamad Saeed Al Shamsi, UAE Ambassador to Lebanon, stated that the initiative aims to support orphans, widows, people of determination, poor families and elderly people while noting that the project covered most Lebanese cities and villages.
The UAE’s related projects reflect the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, which has become a domestic, regional and international model, he added while thanking Emirati organisations, volunteers and strategic partners who ensured the project’s success.
The project’s beneficiaries thanked the UAE for launching humanitarian projects in Lebanon during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
