During his visit to the UAE Red Crescent (RC) yesterday, Bro hailed the humanitarian assistance from the UAE and expressed his country's gratitude to the support which comes on the directives of the President, His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and Gen. Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, to boost the Lebanese people's morale.

"We appreciate the role of UAE RC under the leadership of Shaikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahayan, Deputy Prime Minister and the RC Chief," he noted.

The Chairman of the RC Board, Khalifa Nasser Al Suawidi welcomed the Lebanese Ambassador and the two sides reviewed the current situation in Lebanon particularly with reference to health, living conditions, displaced people, and the homeless in different places in Lebanon. The Ambassador affirmed that the situation is very critical as a result of Israeli attacks, bombs, siege, and the continuing targeting of the relief trucks.

"Lebanon faces a major humanitarian disaster, and it is really hard to deal with… without the Arabs cooperation," the Ambassador said. He stressed that UAE was in the lead to assist Lebanese people in the hard times. "As usual, UAE moved both the leadership and the people to provide assistance," he added.

On his part, Mr Suawidi, Chairman of the RC Board, affirmed that UAE has only been discharging a national obligation toward its brothers who suffer due to the war and its horrible consequences. He stressed that the RC would spare no effort to fulfil the Lebanese need for humanitarian assistance.
