The UAE President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi have sent urgent humanitarian aid to those affected by recent events in Libya.
HH Sheikh Khalifa and HH General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, have ordered emergency food to be sent to Al Abraq.
The move aims to extend a helping hand to those polarised by two competing governments in different cities.
The Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation organised three cargo planes carrying food and health rations as well as blankets to the city of Al Abraq.
The first plane was sent this morning and will be followed by two more planes at a later date.
