Hundreds of UAE citizens and expats came together over the weekend to prepare relief supplies for those affected by the eruption of Taal volcano in the Philippines.
Volunteers helped pack boxes filled with essential items to be airlifted by the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC).
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, shared a photo of the gathering on his Twitter account.
