The UAE Embassy in Pakistan has launched an aid campaign to help feed and clothe thousands of families in the country.
Food baskets and Eid clothing will be distributed across the city of Mansehra in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region thanks to a donation by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment.
The UAE Ambassador to Pakistan, Hamad Al Zaabi, praised the role played by a host of charities and government institutions in Pakistan for helping the embassy reach the most vulnerable sections of society, reported state news agency Wam.
He hailed the support of the UAE's leadership in driving forward the embassy's efforts to provide a "better life and future" for so many people in Pakistan.
Mr Al Zaabi also thanked the embassy's local partners, volunteers and the various organisations that provided logistical support, for the time and effort they put in during the holy month to "bring smiles" and for easing the suffering of thousands of Pakistani families.
