As the Society always aims and wishes to bring smile on the faces of the patients, the National day celebrations further enhance their national spirit of Unity. This particular event is highly anticipated and popular amongst our patients. Each year the Society witnesses massive participation from the UAE patients and many Emirati artists and journalists are traditionally invited to share the joy and the spirit of the union with the patients and their families. The UAE National Day includes many traditional shows, heritage scenes, folklore shows, dances and amazing Emirati games as well as henna tattooing and photography with falcons, drawing on different traditional materials, decorating the heritage sticks, riding camels , and gifts. The Society with the support of the DP World has been collaborating with many other organizations like universities, schools, consulates as well as private and government organizations since many years.
