UAE Humanitarian Support for Afghanistan and Pakistan

Afghanistan

In 2009, widespread insecurity, increased violence, poverty, chronic underdevelopment and natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods have contributed to intensifying Afghanistan's underlying food insecurity; the 2007–2008 National Risk and Vulnerability Assessment found that 7.4 million people – nearly a third of the population – were unable to get enough food to live active, healthy lives.

The UAE committed more than AED 1.26 billion (US$343.4 MILLION) in aid to Afghanistan in 2009, representing 14 per cent of the UAE's total foreign aid during the year.  Although a number of UAE donors were active in Afghanistan, almost 73 per cent of assistance (AED 918.3 million) was in the form of grants administered by the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development.  Most of that money (AED 863.2 million) was allocated to construction, with the remainder going to transport and storage. Some AED 26.8 million went towards social infrastructure and services.

The UAE continues to make a significant humanitarian contribution in Afghanistan, and has done so since 2003.  Through organizations such as the Red Crescent, the generous donations made by UAE citizens and volunteers have contributed to the construction of:

  • 11 schools educating 300 students per day;
  • Six medical clinics which have treated 35,000 Afghan patients;
  • Zayed University, Afghanistan, serving over 6,400 students per year;
  • A majo
