posted on 16/02/2010: 1771 views

In a celebration held at Emirates Palace last night, nine extraordinary individuals were recognised for their generous and worthwhile deeds at the fifth Abu Dhabi Awards ceremony. His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces and Chairman of the Executive Council personally presented the Awards and congratulated each recipient.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan underscored the commitment of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE and Ruler of Abu Dhabi to the Abu Dhabi Awards and expressed gratitude that the program continues to preserve the legacy of the nation's father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed indicated that the UAE is abundant with great men and women who are keen on putting their full potential in the service of their country and for its prosperity and progress; and who would rather be faceless and work humbly and silently. Sheikh Mohammed also stated that the UAE, under the leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed, highly appreciates every effort made by those men and women who contributed to making the UAE achieve, grow and prosper.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed concluded his statement by congratulating the awards recipients and wishing them all success in their endeavours to serve the country. "It is comforting that the awards recipients represent full cross-section of the Abu Dhabi community', His Highness said calling on the youth to follow suit as ‘we seek comprehensive development that requires the contribution of every citizen so as to underpin the country's position and its pioneering role in the region and the world at large'.

This year's Awards recognised a range of different projects and initiatives that have contributed immeasurably to the community spirit of Abu Dhabi. From pioneering formal education in Al Ain, and promoting environmental awareness through education in Al Gharbia to volunteering to raise much needed financial support, and inspiring people through poetry - the recipients of the Abu Dhabi Awards reflect the full cross-section of the Abu Dhabi community.
