Khalifa Bin Zayed al-Nahyan Charitable Foundation
provides Ramadan relief to refugees

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) is distributing food baskets to 1167 vulnerable Palestine refugee families in Syria as part of a regional donation of the Khalifa Bin Zayed al-Nahyan Charitable Foundation.



Each gift basket includes essential food stuffs that are traditionally consumed during the holy month, such as rice, sugar, sunflower oil, butter, packed cheese, macaroni, noodles, tea and dates, all of which are Syrian-produced. In addition, each family will receive US$ 20 for the purchase of meat and/or chicken.

Baskets will be distributed to refugee families in Damascus, Dera’a, Hama, Homs, and Lattakia. In Damascus, the refugees will receive the baskets from a tent at the UNRWA community development centre marked with the Foundation’s insignia. Targeted families are typically large in size, with no breadwinner, or are households similarly in need such as those headed by women, widows, orphans, elderly, and disabled.




The Foundation, whose donation to refugees in Syria totals US$ 100,000 this Ramadan, is a charitable arm of the UAE government and supports a wide-spectrum of charities and causes.

Panos Moumtzis, Director of UNRWA Affairs in Syria thanked the Khalifa Foundation for its generous contribution: "This donation is a sign of solidarity with Palestine refugees and helps ease their hardships."
