The UAE Has Paid Tribute To Frontline Workers On The Occasion Of Zayed Humanitarian Day
April 10 is a very special day, not just because its the 19th day of Ramadan but because it’s Zayed Humanitarian Day. This day is used to commemorate the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the UAE’s Founding Father, and his unwavering commitment to humanitarian work. Sheikh Zayed’s legacy of generosity and giving has become an integral part of Emirati culture and national identity.
