The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation, MBRF, has distributed 360 tonnes of basic food supplies to vulnerable people in Somalia, benefitting a total of 4,600 families.

This act is an implementation of the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, supported by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to aid the people of Somalia to overcome their difficult living conditions.

Ibrahim Bumelha, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees of MBRF, said that a delegation from the Foundation has supervised the coordinated procedures for food distribution in Somalia to beneficiary regions in Hargeisa, with large numbers of affected people, in coordination with the foundation's local partners.

Bumelha added that the aid included basic food supplies such as rice, flour, sugar, oil and milk, as well as dates and baby milk.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Foundation allocated an initial amount of AED5 million to implement the rescue projects, which aim to help the Somali people and assist millions of other vulnerable peoples. http://wam.ae/en/details/1395302614389
