Ajman Ruler to aid six siblings whose parents died from coronavirus


Ruler of Ajman, Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi.

His Highness Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Ajman has come to the aid of six orphaned Sudanese siblings, after their parents died from coronavirus within a month.

The 57-year-old father, a Sudanese national, died on May 18, just 23 days after his 37-year-old wife. Both passed due to complications caused by COVID-19.

Sheikh Humaid will pay for all living, educational and social expenses of the six siblings whose sad story went viral on social media sites.

The children are all aged between four and 16-years-old.

His gesture comes in line with the tolerant teachings of Islam about caring for orphans and the Emirati traditions of extending helping hands to the needy and poor families.

The Ruler of Ajman ordered provision of all necessities and care to the six children.

The six children used to live in Al Tauwan in Sharjah but have now moved to live with their father’s nephew in Ajman.

Their new guardian, who recently married, said the children’s father suffered from diabetes and fell ill just days after his wife died.

“We were told both the children’s parents were critically ill with COVID-19 due to complications they suffered from,” said the guardian.

He added that he hoped the children would be able to overcome the loss of both parents in such a short space of time.
