H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, Chairwoman of the General Women's Union (GWU), President of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, and Supreme Chairwoman of the Family Development Foundation (FDF), the "Mother of the UAE," expressed her gratitude to the Emirati youth.
"I salute you, from a loving and lucky mother, who is praying that you always serve your country with excellence," she said.
Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak’s speech was delivered by H.H. Sheikha Fatima bint Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, during the first Fakhr Forum organised by the Federal Youth Authority, in cooperation with the National Service Authority.
"Mothers in the UAE are optimistic about the nation’s future, due to the efforts of their children, who are ensuring the country’s leadership and overall excellence. Today, we are telling our youths that they have contributed to the country’s development, proving the success of the investment of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan in social development," Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak added.
She also noted that Sheikh Zayed is alive in the hearts of the Emirati people, through their ambitions and loyalty to the country, and their persistence in creating a bright future.
"The presence of women in the National Service is a source of pride for us all and was a dream of Sheikh Zayed that was achieved by the country’s leadership, who taught us solidarity and cooperation," she said in conclusion.
