- Supporting the Palestinian people is a long-held tradition of the UAE, Sheikha Jawaher says
LONDON: Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al-Qasimi, chairperson of The Big Heart Foundation, has directed the organization to provide relief aid worth AED 30 million ($8.1 million) to Palestinians in Gaza, Emirates News Agency reported on Sunday.
The move comes amid Israel’s escalating military operations in the besieged enclave, which has left its population facing an unprecedented humanitarian crisis without access to food, housing, clean water, electricity, medical supplies, or other needs.
Sheikha Jawaher, wife of the ruler of Sharjah Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al-Qasimi, emphasized that supporting the Palestinian people is a long-held tradition of the UAE.
She also stated that humanitarian activism for Palestinians was at the heart of the TBHF’s formation, which began with the 2009 Salam Ya Seghar campaign. It launched one of the organization’s main programs, the Palestine Fund.
Sheikha Jawaher urged individuals and institutions around the country to donate to these efforts to provide necessities to the Palestinian people.
