UAE Ambassador visits the New Zealand Islamic Development Trust

WELLINGTON, — Saleh Ahmad Al Suwaidi, Ambassador of the UAE to New Zealand, has visited the New Zealand Islamic Development Trust in Auckland.

The visit comes in line with the Holy Month of Ramadan, and the distribution of meal plans through the ‘Mawa’ed Al Rahman’ initiative in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands, including the Republic of Fiji, Tuvalu Islands and the Kingdom of Tonga. This initiative is sponsored by the Emirates Red Crescent, ERC, and the Sharjah Charity Society, with the supervision of the UAE Embassy in New Zealand.

Al Suwaidi praised the ERC and the Sharjah Charity Society’s aid programmes that assist the underprivileged around the world. He also reviewed the procedures for the issuance of New Zealand halal certificates for meat exports, one of the most important commodities exported by New Zealand to the UAE.

In a telephone conversation with Hafiz Khan, President Fiji Muslim League, the Ambassador discussed ways of cooperation and coordination with the League on the project to provide fasting individuals with meals.

Mr. Khan thanked the Emirates Red Crescent and the Sharjah Charity Society, emphasising the appreciation of Muslims in Fiji for the humanitarian and charity work provided by the United Arab Emirates.
