Ahmed Mohammed El Hammady, AARCS Deputy Director, said the campaign is being organised by the Red Crescent Society in collaboration with the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment under the theme (Their Children are Our Children) in order to support the Lebanese people facing a deepening crisis.

El Hammady said the cash and all other relief material was collected on the very first day of the campaign that kicked off in Al Ain City recently.

"This quick response reflects the deep feelings of not only nationals but other residents as well towards those suffering in Lebanon," he added. Some families and philanthropists have also donated their jewellery sets to the AARCS.

He appealed to Al Ain residents, nationals and expatriates, to donate more to contribute to the massive relief efforts.
