Under the patronage of Sheikha Maitha Bint Ahmed bin Mubarak Al Nahyan, Chairwoman of the Maitha Bint Ahmed Al Nahyan Foundation for Community and Cultural Initiatives, in cooperation with the Zayed Higher Organization For People of Determination, and organized by the Emirates Red Crescent Authority, the Foundation launched the "Khair Zayed" initiative, a charity event led by a group of People of Determination who distributed Iftar meals to workers in a labor camp in Abu Dhabi, in conjunction with activities accompanying the Zayed Day for Humanitarian Work.
On Sheikh Zayed Humanitarian Day, and in the first cooperation between Zayed Higher Organization for People of Determination and the Ministry of Youth and Sports in the Arab Republic of Egypt, the "Bridges of Hope" training workshop for training parents of people of determination will be concluded today (Saturday), through remote visual communication coordinated by the organization, over a period of three days, from April 29th to May 1st.

Coordinators of offices for people of ability and determination in all Egyptian governorates were also in attendance.
