Dar Al Ber Society (DABS) has launched an emergency relief campaign for the benefit of the Somali people hit by a massive famine and drought that reportedly killed many people and domestic animals.
Khalfan Khalifa Al Mazrouie, Chairman of Dar Al Ber Society, Dubai said the relief drive is a literal translation of the UAE charitable and humanitarian policy, and is in line with the vision of the prudent leadership.
“The move is also in view of the UAE civilized mission towards the entire world, and is a big boost to the deeply-rooted culture of giving and voluntary work inherited by the Emirati people generation after generation.”
The relief campaign will be targeting the three areas in the northern region of Somalia. “These are apart from three other areas in the eastern region, and two more in the southern region.”
Abdullah Ali bin Zayed, Executive Director of Dar Al Ber, said the campaign will secure a variety of foodstuff in two big containers to the African country.
“Initially, Dh2,800,000 have been allotted for the relief campaign to buy food packages, including rice, sugar, flour, dates, cooking oil, milk, power milk, and biscuits, to the famine-hit Somali people.”

Imran Mohammed Abdullah, Head of charity projects Sector at Dar Al Ber, who chaired the DABS delegation to Somalia, said they have specified Dh570,000 for the Al Ber Hospital in Mogadishu the capital.
“These will help provide the needed medicines, fluids, and special foods for the patients and drought victims.”
The Dar Al Ber delegation included Abdulkarim Jaafar Al Hassan, manager of projects department who is deputy head of the delegation, as well as Naji Dahab, manager of administrative affairs, Saad Jamea, and Ulwi Sharif.”
