Abu Dhabi, The Gulf Observer: Tomorrow, the United Arab Emirates will mark “Zayed Humanitarian Day,” an annual occasion observed on the 19th of Ramadan, in remembrance of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s Founding Father. This day serves as a tribute to his enduring legacy of compassion and philanthropy, which has deeply influenced the nation’s commitment to humanitarian causes.

In honoring Zayed Humanitarian Day, the UAE reaffirms its dedication to perpetuating Sheikh Zayed’s noble legacy, characterized by a culture of giving that transcends borders. His vision, rooted in compassion and a resolute commitment to uplift humanity, continues to inspire the nation’s humanitarian efforts, solidifying the UAE’s position as a global leader in charitable endeavors.

Amidst this year’s commemoration, a series of testimonials underscore the profound impact of Sheikh Zayed’s humanitarian vision and his extraordinary acts of kindness, which remain fundamental to the UAE’s ethos.

Key among these efforts is the “Mohamed bin Zayed Water Initiative,” spearheaded by President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, aimed at addressing global water scarcity. Additionally, the “Mothers’ Endowment” campaign, initiated by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai, honors mothers worldwide by establishing a substantial endowment fund supporting education initiatives.

Throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan, the UAE has launched numerous charitable initiatives worldwide, reflecting the spirit of generosity, mercy, and tolerance epitomized by Sheikh Zayed. The nation’s steadfast commitment to providing relief to countries facing crises underscores its unwavering dedication to humanitarian causes.

Sheikh Zayed established a robust institutional framework for foreign assistance, directing approximately AED90.5 billion in developmental and humanitarian aid to over 117 countries during his leadership.

As the UAE commemorates Zayed Humanitarian Day, it renews its pledge to emulate the compassion and generosity embodied by Sheikh Zayed, ensuring that his legacy of humanitarianism continues to positively impact communities worldwide.
