AJMAN, 30th January, 2018 (WAM) — H.H. Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, has highlighted the importance the UAE’s wise leadership is attaching to social responsibility and its role in community development, through promoting the culture of collective action and strengthening co-operation among community members.
H.H. Sheikh Humaid made this statement while attending today the launch of the Ajman Social Responsibility Summit 2018, organised by the Ajman Centre for Social Responsibility, part of the Ajman Chamber of Commerce and Industry, at the Emirates Hospitality Centre in Al Jarf, Ajman.
“We must unite to promote the concept of social responsibility and make it our methodology, in line with our belief in its importance in sustaining progress, development and prosperity,” Sheikh Humaid said.
He called on the audience to unite their efforts and launch initiatives to strengthen social responsibility among UAE citizens and engage the private sector in developing their community, as well as to meet their social responsibilities, enlarge the scope of their overall activities, and find solutions to the challenges besetting economic growth.
He added that organising the summit aims to enhance the emirate’s efforts in terms of social responsibility, especially in light of the desire of many authorities to promote their role and implement projects, which will benefit them and the community.
“We did not understand the meaning of social responsibility, until late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan achieved the goals of social responsibility in terms of sustainable economic development. This sense social responsibility exceeds the borders of the nation and is present in other countries, such as the construction of the Marib Dam in Yemen, hospitals in Pakistan and Morocco, and housing projects in Egypt. This is how President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and Their Highnesses Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates, are following in the footsteps of the late Sheikh Zayed,” Abdullah Al Muwaiji, Chairman of the Ajman Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said in his address to the summit.
Al Muwaiji praised Sheikh Humaid’s support for social responsibility, his visits to Syrian refugee camps in Jordan, and his orders to build hospitals and provide them with medical supplies and medicine.
