ABU DHABI: Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women’s Union, Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation and President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood announced adoption of a new theme for the “Emirati Women’s Day,” celebrated yearly on August 28.

Sheikha Fatima said the new theme “Women are partners in giving,” was adopted to reflect women’s role in the community welfare and in the success of the “Year of Giving” initiative, launched by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

She added that the announcement of President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to mark 2017 as the Year of Giving, was an extension to the benevolent deeds of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, whose vision and approach were founded on giving to his people and to the humanity.

“The concept of giving is deep-rooted in the Emirati culture and the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan will always form the basis for the UAE’s message of peace and giving,” she said.
