His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, has praised a young Emirati girl who took up the responsibilities to become a nurse.
Sheikh Mohammed said on Twitter, “Hamda Ali Al-Doubi... an Emirati nurse in the frontline of defence... a graduate of Fatima College of Health Sciences.
Greetings to her... Greetings to Sheikha Fatima, who sponsored her college... Greetings to the homeland that brings out new models of heroes every day.”
The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (Mohap) shared a video and said, “Hamda Ali Al-Doubi, a role model for the Emirati nurse in humanitarian duty.“Her smile is a source of optimism and her work is a source of pride for her family, and is highly appreciated by the country’s leadership and people.
Thank you, our first line of defence heroes.”
Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, launched the ‘Your City Needs You’ volunteering campaign through the ‘Day for Dubai’ app.
Like Hamda, several young Emiratis have taken up the responsibilities to serve the community.
Dr Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson for the UAE health sector, called on the nation’s youth to volunteer in all fields, and raise awareness about the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) based on scientific facts and credible information to counter misinformation and rumours often circulated on social media, which have been triggering needless fear and panic in people.
The mirror that COVID-19 has forced us to look into is one that has no cracks, it reflects reality in its harshest form and unless we truly look, and come out the other side changed human beings, all this agony would have been for nothing
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has taken all necessary measures to evacuate Emirati citizens and their companions abroad, in co-ordination with UAE embassies and representative missions abroad.
The pandemic has engulfed the world in sorrow and pain, forced closure of almost all outdoor events and locked millions of people indoors. But shortly the gloom will come to an end and humanity will come alive once again. So also will be the case with the rescheduled Expo 2020 (“New dates for Dubai Expo 2020 announced,” May 4, Gulf Today).
The dramatic performance ‘Seeds of the Union’ was broadcast live from Abu Dhabi at 6:15 pm. The show took the form of a moving sculpture surrounded by sea and illuminated by visuals portraying themes inspired by UAE history and values.
Global Village in Dubai sets off a massive fireworks display for its guests and Dubai residents on the occasion of the 49th UAE National Day on Wednesday night.
To mark its 49th National Day, the UAE launched the surveillance satellite Falcon Eye into space from the French Guiana Space Centre, in South America, at 5:33am UAE time (01:33 GMT).
The department of health said in a statement, “The government has today accepted the recommendation from the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to approve Pfizer-BioNTech's Covid-19 vaccine for use."
