Zayed Humanitarian Day is a time to honor the lasting impact of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, may he rest in peace, and his remarkable humanitarian and social achievements. He was a pioneer in extending aid and assistance around the world without discrimination based on race, color, or religion, which made his name engraved in the memory of peoples and the conscience of societies as a symbol of giving and humanitarian work. This is evidenced by the fact that many urban cities, service projects, schools, and hospitals in different countries still bear his name to this day, as a tribute to his memory and noble deeds, and as an expression of the appreciation of its people for his humanitarian contributions and positive impact.
Today, the Department of Municipalities and Transport (DMT) is inspired by the humanitarian legacy of Sheikh Zayed and his commitment to giving and doing good. DMT is implementing urban and infrastructure development projects and plans that aim to build smart cities, sustainable public facilities, and infrastructure. It is also updating and constructing an integrated transportation system that meets the highest global standards. DMT places a strong focus on the well-being of the people it serves, making their happiness and prosperity its ultimate goal.
As we commemorate Zayed Humanitarian Day, we renew our commitment to our wise leadership by remaining faithful to Sheikh Zayed's legacy and adhering to his great human values. We strive to follow in his footsteps and remain steadfast in our dedication to his vision.
