We can't get enough of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's humanitarian efforts – and his latest act is no exception. The ruler of Dubai and Vice President of the UAE has sent his private jet to Haiti and loaded it with Dhs1.3 million of emergency supplies to help the Haitians after the nation was left devastated by Hurricane Matthew.

Sheikh Mohammed loaded his 747B-400 with medical supplies, tents, mosquito nets, water purification units and a range of other support equipment as 300,000 residents are currently living in temporary shelters after their homes were destroyed by that horrible natural disaster.

The relief mission is being overseen by Maktoum's wife, Princess Haya Bint Al Hussein, who flew on board to personally ensure everything was distributed to plan, and has documented her trip on social media to celebrate her husband's kindness for helping those in need regardless of politics, geography, race, color or religion.
