The Main Event, organiser of Mother Baby & Child Show Abu Dhabi, has generously endorsed the Make-A-Wish Foundation, by providing a complimentary exhibition stand to raise funds and create awareness of the foundation. The charity supports the ‘wishes’ of children who are unfortunately diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
Shannon Norris, Exhibition Director, said, “When we were presented with the opportunity to help the foundation we were only too pleased to provide any assistance and support that we could. As a family show, we are proud to be associated with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. We urge everybody that visits the show to donate generously to this worthy cause and to find out more about how to get actively involved.”
Promising three days full of fun and games for all of the family, the Mother Baby & Child Show has put together an all-new and exciting schedule. There will also be competitions with thousands of Dirhams’ worth of fabulous prizes up for grabs from New Boy and Viva Entertainment amongst others.
Proud mums and dads will also have the opportunity to show-off just how gorgeous their little ones are at the Fuji ‘Kids of the UAE’ café. Children’s photos will be displayed around the café and the best portraits could win a Fuji Z1 camera. The star prize however remains 4 nights stay at the Cousine Island, the Seychelles’ courtesy of the Seychelles Tourisim Board.

Make-A-Wish...Giving Hope, Strength and Joy
Each year in the UAE, children are unfortunately diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Thanks to advances in diagnostic and therapeutic technology, many are now being cured while others have their lives prolonged for many years and some, unfortunately, lose their battle.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation steps in to assist these children and their families by providing an avenue for hope and strength. By focusing on the positive, the Make-A-Wish Foundation brings magic and joy to these children each year, by granting their most cherished wish. This is an experience that the children, their parents and siblings look forward to, often holding on to it to get through the tougher times.
From the magic and power of having their most cherished wish granted, these children are given hope, strength and much joy.
