HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Khalifa Al-Nahayan, Member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, has granted a hundred wishes of children, both nationals and foreigners, who suffer from various life-threatening diseases.

In a statement made on the occasion of the global celebration of the 30 years of wish granting made possible by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, that falls on 29 April, Sheikh Dr. Sultan said that this edition of the wish-granting comes within the framework of supporting and assisting the Foundation and its humanitarian activities.

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation has enriched the lives of children with life-threatening medical conditions through its wish-granting work. The Foundation's mission reflects the life-changing impact that a Make-A-Wish experience has on children, families, referral sources, donors, sponsors and entire communities.

Sheikh Dr. Sultan said that to stand by the Foundation and to give joy to the lives of children through wish-granting have great importance for several reasons. To see children deprived of many things due to their diseases is a painful experience for me personally, he said.

Hence, I wanted to contribute to this and I am working to help them fulfil their wishes, though small in size but large in value, thus kindling in them hope for a better tomorrow, he added.

"Our religion of Islam encouraged us to help the needy, so how about a child whose disease deprives him of the most beautiful moments from time to time", he said. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
