Zayed Exhibition opens at DM’s Al Kifaf Centre

DUBAI, 22nd January, 2018 (WAM) — Hussain Nasser Lootah, Director-General of Dubai Municipality, opened a photo exhibition on Monday about the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder of the UAE, at the Municipality’s Al Kifaf Centre near Al Jafiliya Metro Station.

The exhibition is part of Dubai Municipality’s plan to launch several initiatives in support of the Year of Zayed 2018, as announced by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

The exhibition displays 100 pictures of the official meetings of Sheikh Zayed at the local and international levels, as well as his meetings with citizens during national celebrations. Other pictures include meetings of the Supreme Council of the UAE with the rulers of other emirates. The exhibition will be moved to other centres in the Municipality after two weeks.

The exhibition was organised by the Corporate Marketing and Relations Department in the Municipality using the large photo collection from the Municipality’s archives that contains photos, which depict a long period of events witnessed by the UAE and the emirate of Dubai.

“The Municipality has taken great care to implement the directives of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan by launching many initiatives dedicated to the concept of charitable and humanitarian work, on which the country has been established, since the era of the late Sheikh Zayed, who directed to establish a firm approach in the field of extending humanitarian interaction with all groups and segments of different areas and levels. Dubai Municipality has been and continues to be a pioneer in this field and has launched many initiatives in this regard in application of these wise directives inherent in the government and people of the United Arab Emirates,” he said.

Lootah added that the Municipality has worked in light of the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, to involve all members of society of all ages, groups, nationalities and religions in achieving the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed, locally, regionally and internationally.

“The late Sheikh Zayed knew that doing good deeds has no limits. Therefore, he will always remain a symbol of humanitarian action on the Arab and international levels. The UAE has become a global model to follow in the field of humanitarian and development work, and established its image abroad as an address for humanitarian donations.

“Sheikh Zayed had a very kind heart for all and his tolerant thoughts spread to all parts of the earth. His hands stretched silently to establish a relief project at times, or to wipe a tear or feed another hungry person, until the UAE became an umbrella for those who experienced life with troubles and crises. But he insisted that the charitable approach is the state’s approach. He always directed to do good, wherever it is, and always work to ensure that the UAE is proactive in helping those in need around the world.

“The emblem of the Year of Zayed will also be displayed through the social media channels of the Municipality. It has also begun using the slogan of the Year of Zayed 2018 in its correspondence, as using the slogan is an expression of the importance of this national occasion and reflects on the early contribution to the publication of the logo locally and internationally, to highlight the role of the late Sheikh Zayed in the establishment of the UAE, and is also an extension of the Year of Giving 2017,” said Lootah.
