Princess Haya Flew to Haiti to Help Arab Troops With the Hurricane Relief
Princess Haya has chimed in on the efforts to relieve the people of Haiti after Hurricane Matthew hit. The wife of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum made the trip to the Caribbean island over the weekend and got stuck in to see how Arab troops were handling the tragic situation.
In a series of pictures posted on Instagram her captions explained how the UAE was contributing to helping feed people, despite problems going on within the Middle East right now.
"The temporary shelters that the 170,000 displaced people , now seek refuge in are churches, schools and a gas station or small holding that may have survived," Princess Haya wrote on Instagram. "You can see they are in shock.There are living people, but they just stare, with no sign of life in their eyes or their faces."
In an opinion editorial about World Food Day on Saturday, Princess Haya reminded people of how we can help the less fortunate people of the world.
"Among all the people I know well, the person who has made the biggest impact on the global humanitarian scene, is HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum," she wrote. "In my work with global charities and aid organizations, I have seen what a difference people like him, with the will and determination to take decisive action, can make to a humanitarian mission. His 'heart' truly helps people."
Before that the royal met Pope Francis and attended a soccer match for peace.
