UAE Sheikha Jawaher Directs Dh30 Million Aid to War-Torn Gaza
Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, the wife of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, has taken a compassionate step by directing The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF) to provide an urgent aid package of Dh30 million to support Palestinians affected by the ongoing conflict in Gaza.
Urgent aid for Palestinians in Gaza
This gesture reflects the UAE's unwavering commitment to humanitarian assistance, and it carries forward a legacy of support for those in need.
In her statement, Sheikha Jawaher emphasized the enduring and time-honored principle of providing support and assistance to the Palestinian people, a principle that the UAE and Sharjah have upheld with pride. This commitment to humanitarian support and advocacy for the Palestinian population has been a central tenet of TBHF's mission since its inception.
The roots of this commitment trace back to the 2009 'Salam Ya Seghar' campaign, which marked the inception of one of TBHF's pivotal programs, the Palestine Fund. Over the years, this fund has played a crucial role in delivering humanitarian aid and relief to Palestinians, particularly during times of crisis.
The Urgent Need for Assistance
Sheikha Jawaher recognized that the Palestinian people are currently enduring incredibly challenging times in Gaza, and the need for support is pressing. With conflict and its associated hardships taking a heavy toll, every form of assistance, regardless of its scale, holds the potential to make a significant impact on the lives of those affected.
She called upon both individuals and institutions in the UAE, irrespective of their citizenship or residency status, to join hands in contributing to the delivery of essential supplies and support to the Palestinian people in Gaza. This collective effort can provide them with vital necessities and alleviate some of the suffering they are experiencing.

The UAE's dedication to humanitarian causes and its commitment to easing the suffering of those involved in conflicts and crises around the world are both evidenced by Sheikha Jawaher's directive, which highlights the country's status as a global leader in compassion and generosity.
