These roots make us a highly developed country and one that seeks to build a pioneering, sustainable, and prosperous society. The culture of volunteering in the UAE is pronounced and shared by all citizens and residents. The efforts of volunteers follow the footsteps of our founding father and serve to place the UAE in a leading position worldwide in terms of advancing social and scientific development in the interest of the sustainability, wellbeing, and security of our common future”.
