“Humanitarian work is a primary feature of most countries in the world, in international and specialized organizations and in many areas in need of aid and assistance. In the field of education such as UNESCO, the Organization for Health and Agriculture (FAO), environmental, industrial and others. This is the definition of the importance of the humanitarian role, at the level of groups and segments of society in need of assistance, in addition to communities and countries hit by the scourge of wars and destructive natural disasters. In the footsteps of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan -may Allah grant him peace- the Foundation continues its role in humanitarian and charity work, in accordance with the provisions of its Articles of Association aimed at providing assistance in education, health, relief and charitable work, in the Scientific and cultural fields and in honoring the distinguished people who contributed to the development of societies by encouraging research and studies. The Foundation follows up this activity within the UAE by raising awareness of humanitarian work and providing projects and assistance to those with limited income in order to provide a decent life for needy families and to educate children and to support humanitarian programs for orphans and those with special needs.
