In Response to the Directives of the UAE’s Leadership to Support Humanitarian Works – MBR Receives Donations from Children of the UAE

His Excellency Ibrahim Mohammed Bu Melha, Emir of Dubai’s Advisor for Cultural and Humanitarian Affairs and Deputy Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment stressed the importance of humanitarian work and relief campaigns for people affected by natural disasters in allied and sister states. They are useful not only in helping the affected but also in raising cultural and behavioral awareness of members of society and promoting volunteerism and love for providing the needy with aid and relief, which are the most remarkable signs of a civilized society. One of the most beautiful images of community activity is to find children responding to what is happening around them.

Bu Melha referred that one of the sources of pride is children reponsiveness to the directives by HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the President of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), may Allah protect him, and his brother HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President, Prime Minister, and Emir of Dubai, may Allah protect him to provide various aid for the needy and people affected by natural disasters. This makes the Emiratis take pride in the leadership and people of the UAE who provide tremendous aid for all current international relief efforts in disastrous areas around the globe. He added that the responsiveness of children and their families to appeals for relief and humanitarian work has a huge impact on building their character: those children grow up to become typical Emiratis who instrinsically love goodness, cooperation, and serving others.

These statements by Bu Melha came after receiving student Wedad Essam Al Humaidan who donated all of her personal savings. She gathered them from her parents who have been urging her to give to and aid the poor and needy and empathize with them. Bu Melha forwarded appreciation to her good parents for the good upbringing they provided her with.

The student expressed her thanks and appreciation to the Establishment for accepting the donation and providing it for the needy and affected in sister and allied states. This allowed for the relief of brothers and sisters in the manner of prophet Muhammad peace and blessing of Allah be upon him and in line with the tolerant principles of Islam. It also opened the door to activating the spirit of initiative and charity towards others. This is the humanitarian duty called for by all cultures.
