Hamdan bin Rashid: Zayed's wisdom made UAE a beacon of compassion, tolerance and generosity 23 May 2019
 
DUBAI, 23rd May, 2019: H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Minister of Finance, said that the UAE has transcended the borders of the region to be recognised as a beacon of compassion, tolerance and generosity, thanks to the wisdom and compassion of the Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.
In his message marking "Zayed Humanitarian Work Day", which falls on the 19th day of Ramadan every year, the Deputy Ruler said, "Sheikh Zayed inculcated in us the values of coexistence, love, peace and tolerance. It is these values that make the UAE home to citizens and residents of different ethnicities and races, providing them with a decent life and happiness."
"Today, philanthropy in the country has shifted from its traditional, individual concept to a holistic, institutional approach that includes the commitment of all government institutions and entities to not only provide relief material and assistance in kind, but also to be present in areas of crises to provide direct humanitarian support to those in need wherever they might be, their religion or race notwithstanding," he added.
"We reaffirm our commitment to continue down the path created by the Founding Father to dedicate efforts to support humanitarian and charity work and to organise charitable and community events to encourage the spirit of giving and to instil a culture of goodness, as well as to collaborate with all government entities in strengthening the UAE's position as a global destination for excellence, goodness and generosity," Sheikh Hamdan said in conclusion.
