The United Arab Emirates (UAE), under the leadership of President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, plays an active role in strengthening international efforts to put an end to the suffering of refugees and the dangerous consequences of displacement and uprooting of millions of people worldwide, according to Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed, the Ruler's Representative in the Western Region and Chairman of the Red Crescent Authority (RCA). In a statement yesterday on the World Refugee Day, Sheikh Hamdan reiterated the UAE's commitment and support to efforts to stabilize, and promote security in hotspots around the world in line with directives from Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and the follow up by General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. "The UAE will always be a strong supporter for refugees and efforts to put an end to their suffering and hardships and protect their human dignity," Sheikh Hamdan said. "We look forward to a day when there will be no refugees and everybody will enjoy a stable and dignified life," Sheikh Hamdan was quoted as saying by the UAE news agency "WAM." He called on the international community to make more efforts to help refugees as well as to shoulder its responsibility of providing better living conditions for victims of displacement. Sheikh Hamdan further expressed concern over the deteriorating and tragic conditions of refugees around the world. He deplored the fact that 80% of refugees worldwide are women and children.
