Honoring his tradition of doing charitable work during Ramadan this past June, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has launched The UAE Initiative for Connection with Orphans and Minors. The initiative aims to pair orphaned minors with adults who can provide guidance, advice, and caring bonds.
School children in the UAE can be a part of this initiative by offering companionship to the orphans served and by partaking in recreational activities with them. Families can host children either for half-days, providing them with a friendly family atmosphere, or can volunteer to care for the orphans full time.
This initiative will also provide the opportunity for orphans to have access to digital resources, which will educate them and encourage them to pursue a job in government, providing them with career options and a sense of hope for the future.
