SOMALIA: The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation, KF, has distributed food baskets to the students of the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan School for Orphans in Somalia.

The gesture is in line with the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and with the support of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs and Chairman of the Foundation.

The donation also coincides with the 'For You, Somalia' campaign launched by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed to help the Somali people overcome their dire living conditions caused by the continuing drought. The assistance is also a part of the #Year_of_Giving initiative 2017, aimed at enhancing the UAE's humanitarian role and message, while addressing the drought crisis in Somalia.

The KF team toured the school, which includes 11 classrooms for more than 400 orphan students. Officials of the Foundation announced that they are working to boost morale, and provide psychological and material care to the orphans, in co-ordination with the concerned authorities to rehabilitate and reintegrate them into society.

In their remarks to the Emirates News Agency, WAM, Somali authorities extended appreciation to the UAE's wise leadership for supporting the people of their country. http://wam.ae/en/details/1395302619641
