ERC donates ambulances to support Ethiopian healthcare sector

Dr. Mohammed Ateeq Al Falahi, Secretary-General of the ERC, said this initiative is one of a myriad of humanitarian actions taken by the UAE to support the Ethiopian people and assist refugees in many provinces facing humanitarian challenges.

UAE Red Crescent Authority was established in 1983 and gained international recognition as a member of the International Federation of Red Crescent and Red Cross in 1986. His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan took the position of the Chairman of the Board of the Red Crescent in 1986, and then took the position of the Chairman of the Authority in 1993, which gave impetus to the efforts of the human Authority.
