Don't celebrate my accession, thank the labourer, says Shaikh Mohammad





Don't celebrate my accession, thank the labourer, says Shaikh Mohammad

December 30, 2012

Dubai: His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has directed that celebrations on the anniversary of his ascendancy shall be directed to employees of basic services such as gardeners, hygiene labourers, construction labourers, public transport vehicle drivers, house servants, and others, through the "Thanks to you" campaign.

On his Twitter account, Shaikh Mohammad said on Sunday that he has directed the concerned authorities not to allocate any festivities for the January 4th ascendance day. He added that there are other community categories that need our care and thanks.

This year, said Shaikh Mohammad, we will celebrate the category of basic services employees such as gardeners, hygiene labourers, construction labourers, public transport vehicle drivers, house servants, and other related jobs.

“Those categories play a vital role in our community, and some of them have spent long years in delivering their services with loyalty. They deserve to be thanked by us for their efforts, and we want to thank them and celebrate them this year; We want them to know that their services are well thanked and regarded and that they are contributing to making life in the UAE easier, better, and more beautiful,” Shaikh Mohammad said.

Shaikh Mohammad added that thanking these categories and being kind to them does not only reflect the face of a caring community but also conveys the values of Islam, and civilised principals that call upon us all to thank whomever extends their services to us.

He also called upon everyone through his Twitter account to offer symbolic gifts to these categories or to publish something about them and their efforts and services on blogs or through the media, as the goal of this practice is to show goodness and gratitude in our community.

Shaikh Mohammad added that a small gift to those working as house help or working in parks and gardens will tell them they are appreciated.
