Meanwhile, UAE volunteers, engaging in the National Disinfection Programme, have shown a high spirit of national responsibility and community cohesion and solidarity in supporting the nation's efforts to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

True to the deeply embedded value in the community, volunteers of SANID (Arabic for Support), the National Emergency Response Volunteer Program of the Emirates Foundation, have come together to back national efforts aimed at safeguarding the safety, health and well-being of the community.

Volunteers say voluntary work is a well-established value inculcated by the late Founding Father, Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to build a generation capable of confronting challenges and emergencies.
