Supporting Suqia campaign by digging 10 wells in 10 countries
HE Mattar Al Tayer, Director-General and Chairman of the Board of Executive Directors of Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), announced that RTA would support UAE Water Aid (Suqia) campaign by digging 10 water wells in 10 countries (Indonesia, Kosovo, Senegal, Niger, Nepal, Ghana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, India and Mali).
The step is taken in response to HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, call to public and private organisations in the UAE to take part in UAE Water Aid (Suqia) campaign.
Al Tayer made this announcement during the hosting of the virtual water pumping machine where the HE Mattar Al Tayer and several employees operated the machine and filled hundreds of water bottles in support of the campaign. The Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives Foundation will donate the same quantity of water pumped by each entity to individuals in need from regions suffering from water supply shortages around the world.
Al Tayer was delighted with RTA’s participation in UAE Aid (Suqia) Campaign; a unique initiative for providing drinking water to places experiencing scarce water resources. “The initiative of HH to provide drinking water is a further addition to the benevolence of the UAE covering a variety of fields such as education, health, relief and knowledge across the world,” said Al Tayer.
