Abu Dhabi: Emirates Foundation, in its ongoing efforts to foster a culture of giving and solidarity in UAE society, extended its ‘Joy of Eid’ initiative to celebrate Eid Al Adha. The initiative aims to bring happiness to those in need, reflecting the spirit of the festive season.
This time around, Emirates Foundation collaborated with Make-A-Wish Foundation to make the wishes of seven children with chronic illnesses come true. The initiative was recently held at Adrenark Adventure in Al Qana, Abu Dhabi where family members shared the happiest moments and engaging activities of the day with their children.
The event was supported by 15 volunteers from Emirates Foundation’s Takatof Program who ensured things were perfectly organized on the ground and children were having a fun, enjoyable and memorable experience with their families.
“This was an exciting day for the children who were guests of honour at the region’s largest indoor adventure park Adrenark Adventure, and it was heart-warming to see their reactions as they explored the spectacular park and engaged in various thrilling and entertaining activities. This initiative is part of the Emirates Foundation’s ongoing efforts to maintain the well-being of individuals and contribute to social development,” Mr. Mohanna Al Mheiri, Chief Operations Officer at Emirates Foundation.
In Eid Al Fitr 2023, the Emirates Foundation targeted needy families and together as a community distributed over 5,000 pieces of clothing after ironing and perfuming them.
The ‘Joy of Eid’ initiative will now be an ongoing campaign that takes place twice a year in Eid Al Fitr and Eid Al Adha with the goal of making a difference to a demographic group through different initiatives and collaborations.
