“Giving’ is a value we cherish and saw personified in the UAE’s Founding Father Sheikh Zayed. We continue to see this philanthropic legacy embodied by his sons and ingrained in the DNA of our society. Through my humble experience, I believe giving is not limited to monetary donations. Rather, “giving” is defined by the differences we make: the differences in someone’s life, in a society, or in a nation.”
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai
Al Jalila Children’s volunteer programme, Abtaal Al Jalila or Al Jalila Heroes, was inspired by the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed who strongly believes in and espouses the values of sharing, compassion, and tolerance. As the first fully-fledged paediatric hospital in the UAE, we are passionate about children’s healthcare but also believe the multicultural community that Dubai is renowned for, can contribute to making children’s lives better. If you would like to make a difference in the lives of little ones, here’s your chance to be a superhero.
