Under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Sheikha Bint Seif Al Nahyan, Chairperson of Emirates Thalassemia Society, the inter school, college, & University competition, ‘What is Thalassemia?’ 2012, concluded with the mega Awarding Ceremony to honor & appreciate all the participants on 10th of January 2013, in Al Ain Rotana.
All the participants of the competition along with their supervisors were cordially invited to the ceremony to witness the finale of the competition & the winners were officially announced by the Emirates Thalassemia Society. The honoring event started off successfully with over 600 guests from the educational fraternity. The ceremony began with a series of video presentations recalling the winners of the previous competition. The event became highly successful with the prestigious presence of Her Highness Sheikha Sheikha Bint Seif Al Nahyan, who very generously not only attended the whole event, but also escorted on stage to present & honor the winners & all the participants. The winners were cheered & applauded by a large number of attendees respectively.
This UAE wide Thalassemia awareness campaign has been running successfully for the 5th consecutive year where we received a greater number of valuable projects, & the interest amongst the students keep increasing year by year. This campaign was specially planned in order to raise awareness amongst the youth, which now also involves faculty members, families & community members.
The event gracefully concluded with Her Highness Sheikha Sheikha Bint Seif Al Nahyan also launching the new e-booklet of ‘What is Thalassemia?’2013 competition.
We hope to receive even more innovative projects for the coming years!
