ABU DHABI: (WAM) The Zayed Giving Initiative has intensified its humanitarian mission in Sudanese villages, under the supervision of an Emirati-Sudanese medical team,

through an annual programme that aims to provide the best treatment, diagnostic and prevention services to underprivileged people.

These efforts are in line with the directives of the wise leadership under the #Year_of_Giving, launched by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi, in coordination with the Sudanese Volunteer Centre and ministries of health and social security, and participation of Zayed Giving Initiative, Dar Al Ber Society, Sharjah Charity House, the Saudi-German Hospital, and UAE Societal Voluntary Programme.

The initiative aimed at activating and motivating the humanitarian partnership and joint work between the UAE and Sudan health, voluntary, and humanitarian institutions, to reach thousands of children and elderly in various Sudanese villages.
