and human solidarity that are deeply rooted in the leadership and people of the UAE towards supporting their brothers in times of crisis.

Al Mansouri praised the support of Egypt, with its institutions and people, in providing the necessary facilities and coordination required to provide relief to the Palestinian brothers in Gaza. This has facilitated the entry of Emirati aid and the UAE field hospital into the Strip.

He said that the UAE and Egypt are collaborating at official and community levels in a spirit of fraternity and solidarity to support the Palestinian people in Gaza during their difficult times. Media professionals, artists, and social media influencers at the event expressed their joy in participating and commended the UAE’s active role in aiding Palestinians and providing medical treatment. These efforts significantly help ease the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Gaza.

The event “From the Emirates via Egypt to our people in Gaza” demonstrates the coordination and cooperation with Egyptian in
stitutions and communities, underscoring the ERC’s belief in involving key community figures in humanitarian efforts.

The ERC remains committed to supporting and providing relief to the Palestinian people in Gaza. The consistent Emirati initiatives reflect the UAE’s historical commitment to aiding Palestinians, easing their humanitarian crisis, and upholding values of solidarity through a long history of relief and humanitarian work.
