I have reached an understanding that life is a journey that compels us to find a purpose greater than we first imagined. Through this journey, I find nothing to be more rewarding than seeking to help our fellow mankind overcome the difficulties they encounter due to crises, disasters, and natural calamities. This is why I felt it a duty to form the DIHAD Sustainable Humanitarian Foundation, with the sole motivation to unite people across the globe for the greater good. To those who have been given the ability, it is an obligation to improve the welfare of humankind, with no bias towards race, religion, or political affiliation.
According to the United Nations, over one billion people are living in countries with protracted crises, and 274 million of those people will require emergency aid in the year 2022 alone, a 17% increase from the year before. With the resources available to us all today, it is our responsibility to take charge of this matter, which is why we find it imperative to partner and cooperate with multiple private and public organizations from around the world to tackle these issues. It cannot be done alone.
DIHAD Sustainable Humanitarian Foundation embarks on a mission to commit everything within its power in bringing together the most influential entities and decision-makers in the humanitarian aid field, creating an undeniable impact and imperative change. We aim to collaborate and build long-term humanitarian partnerships towards global sustainable initiatives. We also pledge to not only aid and assist in human welfare, but also educate and empower the minds of these communities to ensure a transformation from dependency to interdependency. We firmly believe that investing in the people and their education is immensely valuable, and a key factor in sustaining positive growth in societies and their infrastructure.
While we embark on this mission, we invite you to join us in our efforts for the betterment of mankind. We encourage you to be a positive change in the world, for there is no greater fulfillment to the heart and soul than caring for the needs of others.
