Haya to Launch “Stand Up & Take Action” Campaign Against Poverty
Under the patronage of her role as UN Messenger of Peace and Chairperson of International Humanitarian City, Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, the wife of the UAE’s Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will launch the “Stand Up & Take Action” campaign between October 16-18, 2009.
The “Stand Up & Take Action” (SUTA campaign), which is organised in the UAE by the International Association of Human Values (IAHV) and Art of Living, reminds world leaders of extreme poverty, hunger and reminds them of the pledge they took to achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) by 2015.
On the campaign Princess Haya said, “With just six years left to 2015, our focus on eradicating extreme poverty and hunger from the world has become even more urgent. Let us all commit ourselves to doing what we can to end the scourge of global poverty, starting today.”
Last year 1,114,000 people in the UAE took part and about 117 million worldwide.Filed under Jordan, United Arab Emirates
