Dr. Yaseen Al Kamas, COO of Al Badie Group, accepts the invitation of UniRef, a Swiss international humanitarian organization, to become a member of their Steering Committee.

Abu Dhabi, UAE, 11/6/2019 – A letter of appreciation was delivered personally to Dr. Yaseen Al Kamas by Mrs. Evelyne Wood, President of UniRef, an international humanitarian organization that strives to make higher education available for refugees.

Upon this letter, it was announced that Dr. AlKamas, a business professional and the COO of the Emirati corporation Al Badie Group, has accepted to join the Swiss organization’s team and become a member of their Steering Committee; UniRef’s ‘organ of dialogue and Steering on the development of the organization’s mission’.

Dr. Yaseen AlKamas’ acceptance means that he will be uniting efforts with about half a dozen colleagues on this committee and will be deploying his advanced education, career and multicultural experience in aiding the Swiss Organization on their quest in the Middle-East. “Naturally, your impressive personal and professional background covering an array of countries will be most valuable to our committee”, this is how Philippe D. Monnier, the Steering Committee chairman, addressed Dr. Yaseen to express the committee’s sincere welcome.

It’s noteworthy that Dr. Yaseen Al Kamas has previously collaborated with UniRef in a close manner during the organization’s latest project of launching a University Education Program for refugees in the Emirati-Jordanian camp in Jordan. Due to the project’s massive scale and intricacy, it needed the cooperation of various parties starting with UniRef, and extending to the Jordan Red Crescent and Isra University with major support provided by the Emirati investment leader Al Badie Group, whose COO is Dr. Al Kamas. Dr. Yaseen’s key role in liaising between the Geneva-based UniRef and the group’s management greatly contributed to the success of this humanitarian project. His role was praised by the founders of UniRef, Mrs. Yvelyne and Mr. Bryan R. Wood, on various occasions.

BANGKOK — Malaysia's foreign ministry says Myanmar's government must pursue justice for alleged human rights abuses against the Muslim Rohingya minority so that hundreds of thousands who fled a brutal military crackdown can return safely to the country.

The campaign led to accusations that security forces committed mass rapes and killings and burned thousands of...

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesia's president said in an interview that he wants to see the speedy construction of a giant sea wall around Jakarta to prevent the low-lying capital from sinking under the sea, lending renewed backing and a sense of urgency to a slow-moving and politically contested mega project.

Aug 19, 2019

JAKARTA, Indonesia — Indonesian President Joko Widodo said in an interview Friday that he will push ahead with sweeping and potentially unpopular economic reforms, including a more business-friendly labor law, in his final term because he is no longer constrained by politics. Widodo also told The Associated Press that it is "entirely possible" that he could ban the hard-line Islamic Defenders Front during his second five-year term. The group wants Shariah law to apply to Indonesia's 230 million Muslims. It was a key player in organizing massive street protests in 2016 and 2017 against the governor of Jakarta, a Widodo...
