The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) has announced that its humanitarian aid and relief projects and programmes benefitted over 17 million people across the world with a total expenditure of AED262 million in 2019.
 
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, Chairman of Dubai Executive Council and Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees of MBRGI, said the foundation is devoted to expanding the scope of humanitarian aid and relief to reach the largest number of beneficiaries. 
 
“The Foundation stems from a human-centric approach that strives to improve lives, foster the culture of hope, transform challenges into opportunities and invest in the human capital as a nation’s most precious resource.”
 
Sheikh Hamdan added: “The UAE was established on the humanitarian principle of lending a helping hand to anyone in need across the world.
 
"Making a difference in one person’s life can lead to a better future for an entire society.” He said that, “The Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives has succeeded in transforming humanitarian work into an integrated system of giving that provides efficient and swift response to empower communities, therefore, strengthening the UAE’s position on the global humanitarian aid map,” he stated.
