The event Ramadan Iftar took a place in Al Jada area in the Emirate of Sharjah in collaboration with “Manbat” Market and “Arada” Company.

HE Dr. Amna bint Abdullah Al Dahak welcomed the children and attendees, emphasizing that celebrating Zayed Humanitarian Day enhances the goodness and humanity in people’s hearts. Her Excellency said it is crucial to instill these values in children to support kindness in the development of the UAE.

HE Excellency said: “Since nature is essential to our existence and future, it is our duty to involve all segments of society, particularly children and young people, in raising awareness of the need to protect and preserve the environment, promote sustainable food security, as these constitute essential elements of our existence and tomorrow.”

HE expressed her happiness to be with the orphans from the Inspiring Youth programme, part of ‘Thank You for Your Giving’ volunteering team to help plant Al Ghaf trees and teach them how to care for them so they can become more engaged with nature. As the Ghaf trees embody a significant natural heritage for the UAE, standing as one of its most important symbols of nature, alongside their immense benefits to the country’s environment and ecosystem.
