Last week, the UAE was hit by devastating flash floods, which impacted parts of the Northern UAE.


The heavy rainfall the UAE has witnessed for the last 30 years resulted in severe flooding in parts of Fujairah and Sharjah the previous week on Thursday, with over 800 residents saved by emergency personnel. Seven individuals also died in the summer deluge.

Several volunteers took to the streets of Fujairah to take part in cleaning debris and rainwater left behind after flash floods. The volunteers were also accompanied by a member of the ruling family of Fujairah.
