Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, has launched the Ramadan campaign which aims to clothe 1,000,000 deprived children around the world.

The campaign will continue until the 19th of Ramadan, which falls on UAE’s Humanitarian Work Day, and marks the 9th anniversary of the death of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

The campaign has gone beyond all expectations and succeeded in raising the Dh40 million needed to dress the one million children in just 10 days from its launch on 11th July which is why Sheikh Mohammad directed that the campaign be expanded in order to increase the number of beneficiaries.
