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, has launched the ‘Social Risk Management Register’, which realises the vision of the wise leadership to foresee and shape the country’s sustainable social development and its future and to monitor and predict current and potential short-term and long-term social risks.

The register aims to research ever-changing social developments and monitor new risks, as well as their current progress and the difficulties in adopting social surveys, due to high costs and time constraints, as well as the need for an early alert system to monitor social risks indicators and intervene in a timely and appropriate manner.

Her Highness also congratulated President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and Their Highnesses, Supreme Council Members and Rulers of the Emirates, and the Crown Princes and Deputy Rulers, on the occasion of the 46th National Day while praying to Allah Almighty to bless the country and make it stronger and more advanced, in light of the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa.

Her remarks came during a visit to the FDF today, where she met with its management while also attending some workshops on child capacity building projects, as part of the government’s strategic vision for early childhood education.

Sheikha Fatima stressed that the UAE, as it celebrates its 46th National Day, is confirming the strength of the Union, which was established by the Founding Fathers, led by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the symbol of giving, who believed in the importance and power of the Union and worked hard on its continuity throughout the years. The nation is now glorious and prosperous, due to the efforts of the UAE’s people, who have continued their achievements and global initiatives, which have impressed the world, she added.
