UAE president Sheikh Mohamed allocates $15M in aid to Gaza

Dubai: President Sheikh Mohamed has pledged $15 million in support of maritime aid to Gaza, directing the funds towards the Amalthea fund. This fund, established by Cyprus, aims to facilitate and coordinate the delivery of aid to the enclave.

Gaza is currently facing severe food insecurity and famine, as assessed by the United Nations. Despite increased international pressure on Israel, ceasefire talks have yet to yield tangible results.

The UAE's contribution to the Amalthea fund showcases the vision of addressing Gaza's worsening humanitarian situation. The primary goal is to ensure the swift and widespread delivery of aid by land, air and sea, according to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In a recent aid effort, 125 tonnes of humanitarian aid and clothing were delivered to northern Gaza through the 30th coordinated airdrop by the UAE. This drop is the largest to date and was achieved through cooperation between the UAE Ministry of Defence and the Egyptian Air Force.

The aid packages included essential supplies as well as special Eid Al Fitr packages containing clothes, toys and sweets. This delivery brought the total amount of aid delivered by air as part of Operation Chivalrous Knight 3 to 1,857 tonnes of food and relief supplies.

The UAE's ongoing efforts to support Gaza is aimed at alleviating the suffering of the Palestinian people. Through coordinated aid efforts, the UAE provide essential relief to those in need in Gaza.
