DUBAI: More than 100 bikers gathered on Saturday at the City Walk 2 in Dubai to take part in the “Ride for DIHAD” Parade. The male and female bikers volunteered to take part in the parade, which is dedicated to raise awareness for DIHAD’s theme for this year: “The Impact of Crisis and Disasters on Children.” The parade also aimed to shed light on children who are languishing from injustice caused by disasters and wars.

INDEX Media – member of INDEX Holding, conducted the “Ride for DIHAD” in cooperation with the General Department of Security Media at Dubai Police. The event is supported by Dubai Cooperation for Ambulance Services, Directorate General of Civil Defence, RTA, MERAAS Holding, the Hawks MC and Emirates Motor Sports Federation EMSF.

The activity came in response to the initiative of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on the occasion of declaring the year 2017 as the Year of Giving.

Bikers who came from the seven emirates showed great enthusiasm to participate in the parade, as they all wanted to be part of the good cause. This is a reflection of the goodwill and the love for charity by UAE residents.

From his side, Dr Abdul Salam Al Madani, Executive Chairman of DIHAD, expressed his gratitude for the instant cooperation shown by all participants and supporters to the “Ride for DIHAD” Parade.

He said: “We are sons and daughters of this nation and we are part of this country which has a very prestigious reputation when it comes to charity and humanitarian work. The UAE has become an international role model in this field by providing aid and humanitarian support to the victims of wars and disasters.”

Dr. Al Madani added: “We were touched by the positive and welcoming reaction given by all participating associations and authorities, who supported this parade. None of them gave it a second thought, they were all responsive and supportive for this noble cause. I would like also to extend my deepest gratitude for all those associations and for the public who took part in this parade and provided facilities for the bikers and the organisers.”
