UAE Foreign Aid

Facts

(1) The UAE has donated billions of US Dollars in overseas aid over the last four decades.

(2) The UAE implements fully its official development assistance commitments to least developed countries.

(3) The UAE has donated over $40 billion in humanitarian and relief aid in emergency situations and charity aid to over 175 countries around the world.

Humanitarian aid accounts for a significant part of the UAE’s total foreign aid where the country responds to major crises through its charities and humanitarian agencies called the Abu Dhabi fund for development, Emirates red crescent, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan foundation and the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum charity and humanitarian foundation as well as other international organizations.

The UAE foreign aid targets priority areas such as humanitarian assistance, charitable aid, elimination of poverty, support for children, global sectoral programs such as transportation, infrastructure, construction of housing complexes, roads, bridges, power generation, governments support, development projects, and empowerment of women

The UAE’s aid has only humanitarian objectives. It is neither governed by politics nor is not limited by geography, race, color or religion of the beneficiary. This is a practical application of the principle of tolerance in the UAE. This policy was laid down by the founder President of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan who stressed that foreign aid and assistance is one of the basic pillars of UAE foreign policy.

When formulating its approach to providing foreign aid, the UAE has adopted the idea of sustainable development and improving the welfare of all mankind.

The main goal of foreign aid offered by the UAE is to reduce poverty and improve quality of life in underprivileged communities, promote relations between the UAE and other states, including the recipient countries and other donor states, and encourage creation of economic relations with developing countries based on mutual interests

The UAE provides foreign aid in response to the directives from His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, extending help to the needy people around the world. This is based on the UAE’s commitment to support the goals of sustainable development that the international community has agreed to achieve in the coming 15 years to eliminate poverty

The International Humanitarian City

Founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai, The International Humanitarian City is the one and only non-profit, independent, humanitarian free-zone Authority hosting a community of members comprised of UN organizations, international non-governmental organizations, intergovernmental organizations, and commercial companies.

The International Humanitarian City is the largest humanitarian hub in the world with the most diverse members. It plays a pivotal role in facilitating first responses to crises at a global level efficiently. Based in Dubai, The International Humanitarian City has a strategic location allowing rapid relief to be within reach in all corners of the world.

The International Humanitarian City enables its members and aid agencies to conduct fundraising activities in the United Arab Emirates with the partnership and support of the City to obtain government approval. it offers an innovative approach to support humanitarian response through its facilities, warehousing and close-knit network of partners in the private sector, local community, and government.

In order to consolidate the impact of the UAE foreign aid, the UAE cabinet has formed the UAE humanitarian committee, which aims to channel and combine the collective expertise of UAE humanitarian responders in order to facilitate, oversee and coordinate the country’s humanitarian aid.

The UAE’s foreign aid was in line with the country’s policy of supporting the UN millennium development goals.

The UAE is currently involved in the efforts to achieve United Nations sustainable development goals.

GCC 2020 Chronic Poverty Vision

Implementation of

GCC 2020 Chronic Poverty Vision

With the believe that eliminating extreme poverty is possible, Royal Group Charity is proud to present the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision to implement our actions on this belief.

Ending extreme poverty is possible and therefore launch a global movement behind this effort.

Each year, the GCC Countries make a life saving difference for millions of men, women, and children around the world to equip and empower the most vulnerable people with tools they need to lift themselves out of poverty.

Extreme poverty and suffering persist in too many parts of the world. More than a billion people struggle to survive each day which is unacceptable to Royal Group Charity Foundation.

With highly skilled and committed professionals who share an exceptional depth of experience will focus on the most vulnerable communities and some of the hardest to reach. GCC 2020 Poverty Vision will be working in over 15 countries across Africa reaching millions of people to help access high quality primary education and supporting children well being which is a worldly recognized solution to the cycle of poverty.

GCC 2020 Poverty Vision is a global community of humanitarians, partners, community members, supporters, donors, and volunteers who share a common vision of a world where no one lives in poverty, oppression or fear. Providing everyone the opportunity to exercise their rights to a brighter future. To have access to the opportunities and choices essential to a healthy and creative life that can be treated with honor and respect.

We are convinced that changes can happen when people are equipped and empowered to improve the lives and futures of their families.

The change becomes stable when we share the vision and help partner organizations and governments reach people on a much larger scale.

We are accurate in going to some of the hardest places and staying until the work is complete to help make sure change is sustainable.

Since 2010, the GCC Countries have been significantly reducing the extreme poverty rate. With this progress maintained, the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision can eliminate at least the most extreme forms of absolute poverty in a much shorter timespan.

Following this road path of the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision, it could take another 40 years or more to lift one billion people out of poverty. Another positive path would be to incorporate the GCC 2020 Poverty Vision with the developing world in seeing one billion people out of extreme poverty by sometime around 2040.

What are the assurances that the second positive path can be followed? Among the list of threats one can identify to attaining that goal, inequality stands out as a major concern. Rising inequality can mean that growth largely by passes poor people. This has been happening in some countries. Experience among developing countries has been varied. Inequality falls about as often as it rises in growing developing countries, although absolute poverty measures tend to fall with growth. High inequality countries have a harder time reducing poverty in that they typically need higher growth rates than low inequality countries to attain the same pace of progress against poverty, and their high inequality often makes that growth even harder to attain.

In thinking about the implications for policy it is important to unpack inequality to identify the specific dimensions most relevant to progress against poverty. Inequalities in access to good quality schooling and health care stand out in many developing countries. In many rural economies, inequalities in access to land also remain an impediment to pro poor growth.

With the required political will, there is much that can be done to improve health and education services in poor places and in making legal systems more inclusive. These are high priorities for antipoverty policy by Improving tax systems in poor countries to expand the revenue for domestic anti poverty policies.

First there will be emergency aid short term assistance to deal with crises. Development assistance should help foster the conditions for sustainable poverty reduction in the longer term, including institutional development and building better public administrations.

It must be acknowledged, however, that the record of development aid has been uneven, and not always well considered in the light of what we have learned about the economics of poverty.

The sustainability of poverty reduction efforts poses a further set of challenges that assure that GCC 2020 Poverty Vision can be anticipated to ensure the sustainability of the reduction in poverty.

The GCC Countries continue to respond to both disaster and chronic extreme poverty.

Royal Group Charity recognizes that extreme poverty is a complex and multidimensional phenomenon which causes severe consequences. People living in extreme poverty also tend to be in poorer health and lack basic employable skills.

The GCC road to a better Africa

GCC states have strengthened aid ties with various African states.

As well as GCC states generous donations to humanitarian appeals in Africa. Numerous GCC charities have operated throughout Africa since the 1980s. The Saudi International Islamic Relief Organization (IIRO) and the Kuwaiti African Muslims Agency (AMA) were among the first state-sponsored Islamic charities to work in Africa.

Although Gulf Arabs have traded with Africans for centuries, the global financial crisis from 2007 to 2008 motivated GCC states to deepen economic ties with Africa. With economies in the West slowing down, Africa’s fast-growing economies and expanding middle classes became an increasingly attractive prospect for investors across the world. Building economic ties in Africa helped Gulf states capitalize on geo strategic location, increase food security, and enhance political reforms. Expanding economic influence in Africa has provided GCC states with most important source of leverage to advance security and diplomatic goals.

GCC states have advanced strategies of economic diversification and reduced reliance on oil by investing in African markets. The UAE invested an estimated $11 billion in capital in Africa in 2016, overtaking Saudi Arabia to become the largest GCC investor and the second largest in the world after China. Gulf companies expertise in the energy sector creates attraction to African states seeking to develop their energy industries. Saudi Arabia recently invested $10 billion in Southern Africa’s energy sector. Meanwhile, the GCC ability to execute large-scale infrastructure projects is also appealing to rapidly-developing African states. Dubai’s DP World announced an initial $50 million investment in an inland logistics facility in Mali in July 2018, complementing larger infrastructure investments in West Africa such as the Dakar port and economic zone. Qatar also signed a $4 billion deal to manage a Red Sea port with Sudan in March 2018.

The GCC geo strategic location also explains why Africa has been a focus of GCC states economic activity. By focusing on infrastructure development and trade, GCC states are able to benefit from Asian trade and investment flows to Africa. China pledged $60 billion in financing to Africa in 2018 alone and increased its total trade with Africa by 180 percent from 2010 to 2017. The UAE has leveraged its superior shipping and port infrastructure to plug into this potential, becoming the largest GCC trader with Africa. The UAE imported roughly $5 billion of goods from Africa each year from 2010 to 2015, before increasing imports substantially to $23.9 billion in 2016. Africa’s growing importance to Emirati trade is apparent from an examination of its imports. As a share of the UAE’s total imports, those from Africa quadrupled in the last six years.

The GCC also identified investing in Africa as a way to achieve food security. The GCC considered agricultural investments in Central Asia and Latin America but determined that Africa’s rich and underdeveloped agricultural lands held the greatest promise. Africa’s geographic proximity to the Gulf was an advantage, it contains 60 percent of the world’s total uncultivated arable lands, and its water shortages were deemed surmountable with appropriate investments. Saudi Arabia is the top investor in agriculture in Africa, conducting large scale investments such as its purchase of 500,000 hectares of land in Tanzania in 2009. For Qatar, the most dependent of the GCC states on food imports. The Qatari government announced plans in 2018 to invest half a billion dollars in Sudan’s agricultural and food sectors. Qatar also entered into talks with Kenya in 2009 to lease 40,000 hectares of land in the Tana Delta.

As GCC states rapidly expand global footprint, and increase mediating role in Africa, it would continue to broaden and deepen ties with African states. To secure economic interests in an arena of greater international competition, enhance lateral engagement with African governments significantly to ensure that interventions are meeting African governments needs and priorities. Such engagement will help ensure that African governments continue to view the GCC as attractive partners and make interventions safer and more sustainable. Part of this approach should involve building people-to-people ties. The GCC would expand opportunities for educational exchange, training collaborations, and tourism links with countries in Africa to capitalize on the potential of young people in Africa and enhance their reputation more broadly.

This builds a better road to Africa and would contribute to the humanitarian needs and help strengthen the African economy to lead and secure a brighter Africa for the people.

Millions of people still live in poverty and hunger, and are threatened by conflict, instability and disease. Inequality is growing and widening the gap between the richest and the poorest. The lack of discipline, transparency and inclusive governance undermines citizens rights and investor’s confidence. The role of governments is vital in implementing those commitments. 

The GCC would continue to cooperate with Africa and help build a transparent road by investing and ensuring that poverty is completely eradicated Africa.

Bringing Hope To Children

 

 

Meeting the needs for education.

Royal Group Charity provides Housing, Opportunity, Protection and Education, to disadvantaged children in developing nations, by providing family housing, supporting local communities and facilitating access to quality education and learning materials.

In the developing world, there are several factors that create roadblocks to a child’s education. The countries that have the lowest enrollment rates are generally those that do not have free, universal primary and secondary education. Where primary education is free, enrollment rates are high but many children do not continue on to secondary school due to high school fees, or because they are forced to work or stay home to take care of siblings.

Lack of proper school facilities and transportation in rural areas often makes it difficult for children to attend school regularly. In addition, there is generally a shortage of qualified teachers. Diseases such as HIV and Malaria have a significant impact on home life, as does hunger, posing further challenges to a child’s education.

Royal Group Charity Foundation’s primary goal is to help children in developing countries gain the benefit of a complete education. We believe education creates change, not only improving the life of an individual child but also contributing to the development of the child’s community and their country.
(Message from our founder His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah)

Education is a right. It is also the most requested service, and key, to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity. Supporting education is a recognition of people’s enormous potential and the right to a better future.

Everyone deserves an education regardless of age or gender, religion or physical capacity, ethnic group or displacement through conflict. Education is essential if people are to participate in the life of their own communities.

Kuwait international humanitarian efforts

Living up to its UN recognition as International Humanitarian Center, Kuwait continues to assist needy people in a number of countries around the world, distributing humanitarian aid to families and needy people.

Further aid comes after conducting a field survey in collaboration with local humanitarian organizations to specify those who deserve assistance in order to alleviate their suffering.

Kuwait has been working to assist the Yemeni people in all areas of education, health, shelter, food and water. 

Kuwait also donated million’s of dollars to finance water plant project as well as supporting health and education issues.

Kuwait’s support in charity and humanitarian work reaches the furthest places and supports and helps the poor and the needy and reaches to those who live in extreme poverty.

It’s a startling truth that can sometimes make us feel helpless.

Yet poverty can and must be fought.

Royal Group Charity Foundation is proud of the continuous love and support His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah carried out in 30 African Countries and all over the world.

We look forward to a brighter and more prosperous future for the world.

Please join us in the fight against poverty, together, we can make a huge difference for children and families living in poverty

(Please help us share and spread the love around the world)

Global Humanitarian Overview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Over the past year, Royal Group Charity Foundation has been to 14 countries where people are caught up in major conflicts and disasters. Royal Group Charity engaged with parents who did not know where their children’s next meal would come from. We experienced families forced to run away from their homes and walk for weeks to find safety from armed conflict or persecution based on their ethnicity and religious beliefs. We listened to survivors of natural disasters whose homes and livelihoods have been destroyed. And heard from people who have somehow managed to survive the most brutal horrors of war and who continue to hold out hope for peace and a better future. We are witnessing extremely high levels of humanitarian need even as global wealth is higher than ever before. The Global Humanitarian Overview provided, for the first time, an analysis not just of how many people need humanitarian assistance, but a clearer understanding of why. Despite global economic gains, 10 percent of the world’s people are still living in extreme poverty. At least 2 billion people worldwide live in areas affected by fragility, conflict and violence, where the intersection of poverty, high population growth, environmental degradation, natural hazards and protracted conflict leave them especially vulnerable. In 2019, nearly 132 million people will need humanitarian assistance and protection, the majority because of the impact of conflict. The United Nations and partner organizations aim to assist nearly 94 million of them. The humanitarian response plans outlined in this year’s Global Humanitarian Overview are the result of in-depth, country-by-country analysis of the most comprehensive data available. Funding requirements are projected to be comparable to last year. While some crises have escalated, this year we also have better prioritization of the most vulnerable and severely affected people, and a stronger coordination with development partners to ensure a focused humanitarian response. Despite the challenges, the humanitarian system is more effective and impactful than it has ever been. We are better at identifying different groups’ specific needs in crises and quicker to respond when disasters strike. Response plans are more inclusive, comprehensive, innovative and prioritized. We have a better picture of needs and vulnerabilities. And we have dedicated networks in more than 20 countries to protect people from sexual exploitation and abuse. All of these factors allow us to design effective responses that save lives and protect livelihoods. Humanitarian aid cannot replace long-term political and development solutions that people in crises so desperately hope for. That is why we are working to mobilize the will, skills and creativity of the global community to end crises and promote development to help people become more resilient to those that can’t be avoided. In 2019, multi-year humanitarian plans and strategies are in place in 12 countries, which allow for greater alignment of humanitarian and development interventions, a focus on building resilience while meeting essential needs, and working together towards common medium- and longer-term objectives. Improved coordination between humanitarian and development partners is delivering results. In September 2018, the World Bank, the United Nations and cutting-edge technology partners launched the Famine Action Mechanism. The aim is to predict crises before they happen, and to trigger earlier funding for actions that may prevent them altogether. None of this would be possible without the thousands of aid workers and volunteers around the world, and the humanitarian organizations, governments and donors who make this life saving work possible. Royal Group Charity remains dedicated in doing it’s work around the world to fight the cause.

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.

At Royal Group Charity Foundation, we believe that education is a key driver to individual development, social, political and economical progress.

We believe that a universal primary education is a key to the future stability of every country.

Education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. It promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits.

Today, millions of children and adults remain deprived of educational opportunities, many as a result of poverty.

The United Nations Convention on the rights of children is a priority for Royal Group Charity Foundation as we continue on working for education for all in the face of conflict and poverty. Education is a right and a must. It is also the most requested service, and the key to helping communities move towards peace and prosperity.

Education is a powerful tool by which economically and socially marginalized adults and children can lift themselves out of poverty and participate fully as citizens.

With the continuous support of the founder and trustee of Royal Group Charity Foundation, His Highness Prince Khalid Al-Sabah is committed to bringing the poor children into education and provide all necessary materials to allow them to complete a good schooling.

The solution for children is education. We demand for developing countries to focus on prioritising a good educational systems that will provide the children with learning opportunities that will change their lives, and the lives of their children to follow.

Universal primary education is a major issue and a sizeable problem for many countries today.

Many emerging countries do not appropriate the financial resources necessary to create schools, provide schooling materials, nor recruit and train teachers. Funds pledged by the international community are generally not sufficient to allow countries to establish an education system for all children.

As a result of poverty and marginalization, more than 70 million children around the world remain unschooled.

Marginalization can have a negative impact on students psychological, emotional and physical health. Some possible psychological and emotional responses to marginalization include anger, anxiety, paranoia, fear, depression, sadness, frustration, hopelessness, resentment, powerlessness, isolation, stress, confusion, and many more.

These are all major problems which Royal Group Charity is addressing to demand the enforcement of the UN rights for children.

The lack of schooling and poor education have also negative effects on the population and country.  The children leave school without having acquired the basics, which greatly impedes the social and economic development of those countries.

Multiple effort’s is needed in order to achieve a universal primary education.

Prince Khalid Al-Sabah donates all fortune to charity

 

The young Prince is one of the world’s undisclosed rich Royals.

Prince Khalid Al-Sabah, the founder of Royal Group Charity had been inspired by the GCC development, founded on 25 May 1981 by the United Arab Emirates. The founders include Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman and Bahrain.

The funds would be used to bring awareness and to help eradicate poverty worldwide.

Many Royals praised the decision, calling it an inspiration to all of us working to fight poverty around the world.

The money will go to the prince’s charitable organisation, Royal Group Charity Foundation, which has been fighting world poverty on a global scale.

The prince, who does not hold an official government position, is also Chairman of Royal Group Holdings which consists of the Petroleum Industry, Construction, Financial and Entertainment platforms.

Kuwait Contributions to World Food Program

The United Nations World Food Program welcomes a new donation of US$50 million from the State of Kuwait for emergency food assistance in Yemen. The funds will be used to reach more than 2.5 million people over two months with wheat flour and oil through both direct distributions and WFP food assistance cards at retail outlets.

“This contribution reflects the generosity of the people and the Government of Kuwait. Under the leadership of His Highness the Emir of the State of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, Kuwait has again stepped up its support to WFP to help us reach vulnerable families in Yemen.  

More than three years of conflict have pushed Yemen to the brink of famine; nearly 18 million people do not know where their next meal is coming from and more than eight million of them live in extreme hunger and depend entirely on external food assistance. 

This generous support from Kuwait will enable WFP to continue delivering food assistance to Yemeni people who need it most.

When one child dies every ten minutes in Yemen from preventable diseases, the key to saving lives is ending the fighting and ending hunger. As conflict continues in Yemen, more people are in danger of falling victim to hunger and disease. Yemen is currently the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. 22 million people out of the country’s 29 million need some form of humanitarian assistance. 

Kuwait is a major supporter of humanitarian and development assistance worldwide. In the last decade, Kuwait contributed nearly US$190 million to WFP operations internationally, helping to make significant steps towards alleviating hunger for some of the world’s most vulnerable people. 

Royal Group Charity can confirm that the State of Kuwait has saved many lives in emergencies and changed lives for millions of children around the world. Royal Group Charity will continue to support the Kuwait cause and mission by continuing its work in more than 40 countries around the world by feeding people caught in conflict and disasters, and laying the foundations for a better future.

 

GCC to donate over $500 million Ramadan aid package for Yemen

Royal Group Charity would like to start by thanking the GCC for this year’s increased pledge of million of funding and it’s continued support to the humanitarian response in Yemen.

 

Charity in Ramadan: Giving 

Giving has always brought out the best in people. Throughout the decades, people have sought different opportunities to give back to human kind.

There is little doubt that the amount of charities have increased, placing a greater need for the generosity of the general public.

Charity: Work

The holy month of Ramadan, when Muslims worldwide fast during daylight hours and abstain from other pleasures, is also the month where Muslims contribute to charity work, and donations for the less fortunate.

There is a noticeable increase in charitable work during the holy month.

We wish the whole year was this way. That’s one of the main purposes of Ramadan, to entice people to do good and to continue throughout the year.

Charity is never obligatory it is always additional. There’s no twisting your arm to do good.

Number one is feeding people, secondly clothing people, and finally housing them – no one should be homeless.

Royal Group Charity is committed to working during the holy month of Ramadan, such as feeding those that are less fortunate. by offering meals that breaks their fast every day.

Many international and national charity organizations take advantage of this month to provide for their various causes.

In the GCC ( Gulf Cooperation Council ) there is a particular drive by the community to help those less well off, Each year hundreds donate food, bedding, toiletries and clothes which are then handed out to workers as care packages.

Everyone participates in Ramadan, every resident tries to give. This is the month of giving, nothing beats that.

Royal Group Charity will continue to fight poverty worldwide and improve children’s access to quality primary education in developing countries.

Saudi Arabia, UAE and Kuwait pledge over $1bn to Yemen:

Saudi Arabia pledged $500 million in humanitarian assistance for Yemen this year during a UN money-raising conference in Geneva.

The UAE also pledged $500 million while Kuwait committed $250 million for Yemen.

The UN said 40 pledges totaling $2.6 billion were received during the day-long conference, a 30-percent increase from the amount drummed up at a similar conference a year ago.

The United Nations’ “Humanitarian Response Plan for Yemen” in 2019 seeks $4 billion to reach 15 million people across the country, after raising nearly $2.6 billion last year.

Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, opening the conference, lamented “an overwhelming humanitarian catastrophe” in Yemen, where some 24 million people, or four-fifths of Yemen’s total population, require aid and protection.

Britain promised $264 million, and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) $24 million. Malaysia was also pledging $100,000 during the conference.

 

Royal Group Charity Assignment:

Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world and are the midst of the worst cholera outbreak in history.

Ramadan is a time that Muslims worldwide can look forward to and come together to help those in need.

Royal Group Charity would go as far as possible to aid the suffering people of Yemen.

Our goals:

  • Help the poor families by providing them with food, water and financial aid.
  • Provide Iftar (hot meal) for the fasting.
  • Giving Zakat and Zakat Ul-fitr to those in need.

Our Ramadan Appeal:

Millions of men, women and children are on the brink of famine in Yemen. The United Nations described it as the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and the International Development Secretary has warned it could go on to be the worst humanitarian crisis since the second world war.  The devastation of war, lack of resources and a weak health service have all combined to tear through Yemen’s infrastructure and leave millions of people without food or water.

With the hope of gaining your support so we can help as many needy people in Yemen as possible. As Ramadan is the most blessed months for us Muslims, it is a great chance for us to earn multiple rewards by giving to those who have less than us.

Fasting the month of Ramadan serves as a reminder of the hardships that millions of people living in poverty endure daily.

What we can do during Ramadan:

  • Provide food packs for poor families
  • Feed the fasting during the month of Ramadan
  • Sponsor orphans
  • Sponsor families during the month of Ramadan
  • Deliver Zakat to the poor and needy

Please help to provide food during the month of Ramadan in Yemen.

 

How you can help:

You can help by providing dates, rice, cooking oil, flour and sugar.

With this complete Ramadan package, this is a great opportunity to sponsor a family for Ramadan and make their Eid even more special by contributing new clothes, sweets or toys for children.

You can make a difference this holy month of Ramadan. Make a donation and become a part of this great cause.

 

Royal Group Charity Foundation is dedicated to ensuring that Yemen children and their families are supported and receive assistance and solutions including their basic human right.

During this Holy month of Ramadan, Royal Group Charity will be distributing food, shelter items, hygiene and household kits and handing out clothes and other basic requirements.
