Amidst the background of a violent conflict that is destroying Yemen, the UAE seeks to prove to the world that the wealthy emirates are capable of more than just spending billions of dollars to create a first-rate military with advanced weaponry.
The majority of refugees are courageous people. They are grateful to be permitted to live in safety here, and in turn they are willing to contribute to their host country. We should give them the chance to do so.
