Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of UAE Armed Forces His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Bahrain's Crown Prince HRH Salman Bin Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa and Somali President Sharif Shaikh Ahmad joined this evening a gathering of a large number of sheikhs, ministers and other dignitaries at a private screening of the documentary: 'Mission: Winds of Goodness' as part of the Ramadan lecture series at the Ramadan Majlis of Mohammed bin Zayed at Al Bateen Palace.

The documentary focuses on the UAE's mission in Afghanistan, which includes delivering humanitarian aid to the Afghan people, maintaining security in a hostile environment, and supporting social and economic development in remote communities.

UAE residents will be the first public audience in the world to watch 'Mission: Winds of Goodness' with its global broadcast premiere on Tuesday, August 23 at 1 AM on Abu Dhabi Al Emarat TV. The 30-minute documentary will be re-broadcast on Wednesday, August 24 at 1:30 PM on the same channel.

The Al Emarat TV broadcast will also include the panel discussion that was held at the Ramadan Lecture Series, moderated by Yasser Al Mansouri and featuring UAE soldiers who have served in Afghanistan and a representative of the documentary production team.

The documentary provides a look into the work of the UAE Armed Forces in Afghanistan and honours the brave individuals fulfilling these important duties on behalf of their country. The film demonstrates how the UAE Forces must rely on their courage, training, and most importantly each other, in order to carry out this important work in the most hostile and challenging of circumstances.

The UAE's policy to provide support to Afghanistan includes healthcare and education projects, such as the construction of clinics and schools; and developing sufficient community infrastructure, such as the provision of mosques, roads, schools and drinking wells.

Since 2003, the UAE's presence as part of an international coalition in Afghanistan has helped maintain security to ensure that humanitarian projects are not undermined by criminal forces that seek to disrupt the provision of aid.

'Mission: Winds of Goodness' is the second in a series of documentaries about the work of the UAE Armed Forces. In June 2010, 'Desert Falcons' told the story of an inspirational group of Emirati pilots and maintenance officers from the UAE Air Force and Air Defence as they represented their country for the first time at 'Red Flag' in the United States, the world's most challenging aerial combat exercise. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
