The quality of mercy is not strain’d, Shakespeare says in his classic Merchant of Venice. Nor is the quality of generosity, aid for the distressed, succour for the needy. The UAE does not only believe in these virtues but also practises them. The gracious and benevolent act of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyanis a sterling example. The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces offered to undertake the treatment of an Emirati woman, 24, who slipped into a coma during a botched surgery recently in Dubai.
According to reports, the father of the patient was contacted by officials from the Crown Prince Court and was told his daughter would be flown abroad for treatment.
The Emirati woman slipped into a coma due to medical negligence that led to cardiac arrest and brain damage.
The Dubai Health Authority banned the two doctors who were involved in the procedure.
Rendering help to the Emirati woman is not the only act of benevolence that Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed has carried out. He has also been making all-out efforts to eradicate polio in Pakistan among other charitable activities.
He wished President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa good health and happiness to continue the development drive and enhance the country's achievements and gains.
The Emirati soldiers said that their morale and determination was high and they vowed to continue their duties, remain loyal and dedicate their lives to the country.
