Dubai - MENA Herald:

The UAE Water Aid Foundation (Suqia), under the umbrella of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, has launched its annual Ramadan campaign to provide drinking water in mosques and Iftar tents throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan. This is done in partnership with Mai Dubai and in cooperation with 14 local charities. For the second consecutive year, Suqia’s Ramadan campaign spans different countries around the world in cooperation with the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charity and Humanitarian Establishment.

“At Suqia, we work in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide drinking water to communities suffering from water scarcity and pollution, in cooperation with relevant local and international entities. The objectives of this year’s Ramadan campaign are aligned with the 2019 Year of Tolerance in establishing the values of communication and co-existence in society, positioning the UAE as a global model for tolerance, especially as the campaign extends in 13 countries around the world in cooperation with Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charity and Humanitarian Establishment,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Suqia.

“In addition to the distribution of drinking water, the Ramadan campaign highlights the drinking water crisis around the world and urges members of society to donate to provide clean water to the needy who spend their time looking for water instead of using it to fulfil their basic needs such as education, work, taking care of their families, and improving their living conditions,” said Mohammed Abdulkareem Al Shamsi, Acting Executive Director of Suqia.

By the end of 2018, over 9 million people in 34 countries around the world benefitted from Suqia’s projects.
