Abu Dhabi launches community drive to ‘enrich lives

The efforts coincide with the country’s ‘Year of the 50th’, declared by President Sheikh Khalifa, which will run from April 6 until March 31 next year.

“In the space of two years, we have taken big strides forward in achieving excellent results when it comes to creating social impact and it is imperative we build on this platform, beginning now in what is an important year for the whole of the UAE with the ‘Year of the 50th’ celebrations,” said Salama Al Ameemi, director general of Ma’an.

“Based on the findings from the United Nations Economic and Social Council report, the UAE has the highest demographic diversity in the world at 87 per cent and with Abu Dhabi becoming increasingly diverse, the importance of fostering social inclusion will grow.”

Ma’an was established in 2019 by the Department of Community Development and came to the fore last year to support those hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
