The Dubai Children’s Medical Center held a special ceremony in honor of prominent Egyptian actress Sofia Al Omari, who is also a UN Goodwill Ambassador. The actress’s visit brought joy to children at the hospital, particularly to handicapped patients who engaged her in endless conversation.
Sofia revealed that her presence amidst the children made her realize the importance of living and not taking things for granted. She observed pure innocence and honesty which the world lacks today, she added. Sofia noted that every time she visits the center she notices significant progress and considers it the best in the region that offers services for handicapped children.
The actress called upon mothers of handicapped children to take training courses on how to provide special care for their children, and suggested having a contest to choose the perfect mother, who will set the example for others.
On a different note, after an absence of more than 20 years Sofia announced that she will make her debut into the cinema once more in the new film “Sooner or Later.” Sofia will star in the film alongside Kong Fu champion Yousef Mansour and American actor Mathews Hues.
Sofia revealed that she had met with Yousef, who resides on a permanent basis in the USA, during his visit to Egypt along with Mathews and had given him her initial approval to star in the film that will be shot in mid-July between Egypt and New York.
Sofia stressed that she wants to look over the script carefully before giving her final approval. The actress wants to ensure her role in the film will be prominent after her long absence.
