Sheikh Hamdan praises the ‘remarkable’ solidarity of Dubai during the pandemic

While it’s safe to say the global COVID-19 pandemic hasn’t been easy on anyone, in many ways it has brought people closer together.

It’s something HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has seen throughout the last few months and has praised the Dubai community, which also includes citizens and residents, for coming together during the pandemic.

In a recent statement, the Crown Prince of Dubai said he has been in awe of the “remarkable cohesiveness” that has emerged.

“The solidarity displayed by various social stakeholders in Dubai in the face of the COVID-19 crisis will be remembered by generations to come,” he said. “The remarkable cohesiveness demonstrated by the community and their commitment to meet their social responsibilities is something the world will recognise as an example of how a progressive society should respond to a crisis like this.”

Along with this, Sheikh Hamdan also gave thanks to those who took part in the Community Solidarity Fund Against COVID-19 which, according to WAM, has channelled more than Dhs343 million into humanitarian efforts to support those most affected by the pandemic in Dubai, whether that be socially, economically or for health reasons.

“We thank all those who contributed to this collective effort including individuals, corporates, charities and various other organisations that helped weather the challenges brought by the crisis,” he said.
