Here’s How Sheikh Mo Helped Victims of the Sierra Leone Landslide



The tragic landslide that has happened in Sierra Leone’s capital, Freetown, killed more than 1,000 and left more than 3,000 without homes, last August. Yesterday, HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum ordered an Airbus A330 carrying 50 metric tons of humanitarian aid to be sent to Sierra Leone.

The plane departed, carrying basic relief items such as food, water, medical supplies, mosquito nets, and blankets, from Al Maktoum Airport.



The supplies were gathered at the International Humanitarian City in Dubai (IHC), which was founded in 2003.



The organization is chaired by Princess Haya and is also the largest humanitarian hub in the world.



WE SAID THIS: Just last month, Sheikh Mo sent aid to hurricane victims in the US, after the UAE Embassy evacuated Emiratis from Florida before the hurricanes struck.
