DUBAI: Princess Haya bint Hussein’s support for humanitarian causes is widely recognized. The princess — wife of Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum and daughter of Jordan’s late King Hussein — is currently drawing attention to the need for aid in Angola.
As highlighted in “Emirates Woman” magazine, Princess Haya posted images of a cargo plane full of aid bound for the African nation on Instagram on Thursday.
“The aid will provide essential equipment and support to those who need it most,” Princess Haya wrote. “The emergency airlift is a symbol of #UAE’s commitment to int’l humanitarian assistance and represents the first phase of an AED 8 million medical and logistics relief program from the UAE to support the humanitarian situation in #Angola.”
The UAE is reportedly ranked as the most charitable country in terms of foreign aid versus national wealth.
