Earlier this week, the UAE, in collaboration with the Vatican Department of Education, dispatched a plane containing 15 tonnes of medical and food aid to the Peruvian Amazon river area.
The gesture was the result of the 'Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together' signed in Abu Dhabi by the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, His Eminence Dr Ahmed El Tayeb and His Holiness Pope Francis, Head of the Catholic Church.
To date, the UAE has sent more than 995 tonnes of aid to more than 69 countries.
