A Jordanian resident and his six sons presented an aesthetic gesture in Ras Al Khaimah, by engraving on sand the Arabic phrase “La Teshlon Hamm” (don’t worry) on one of the emirate’s beaches, which they also documented with a special “video”.

The move promotes the historical phrase of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, which he recently said to assure the people in the country, including citizens and residents.

Omar Ibrahim Al Maghrabi, 55, owner of the initiative, said that it is an open message from all residents in the UAE of various nationalities, to the UAE, its leadership, people, present and future.

The total area of the rectangle portrait is 16.64 square metres, 2.6 metres wide and 6.4 metres long.

Al Maghrabi is an employee at the Ras Al Khaimah Police, who has been working and living in the UAE for 35 years, and came to the UAE in 1985. He accomplished the initiative with his six sons on (Tuesday). All of them, the father and his sons, are employees at the Ras Al Khaimah Police.

He said, “The phrase of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed inspired me with the idea and initiative, in light of the comfort and tranquility that has been left in the hearts and souls, which led me to embody the idea on the ground.”

The phrase has been engraved on the sands of one of the beaches of Ras Al Khaimah, located behind the headquarters of the old University of the Union.

As the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic continues to affect an increasing number of people, it is also inspiring all segments of the UAE society to support the most vulnerable to the social and economic repercussions of the Covid-19 pandemic that brought nations around the world to a standstill.

Recently, various community groups have come forward to help the people affected by the pandemic while financial and in-kind donations continue to pour into the campaign from philanthropists in the society.

One such campaign is organised by Dubai-based NRIs from Thrissur District of Kerala. The group has been running the food donation drive under the banner of INCAS’ Thrissur District Unit.
