In line with the directives of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai to enhance national identity, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has started celebrations for the UAE's 42nd National Day with a variety of national and traditional events with the participation of DEWA’s employees, partners, and customers.

DEWA’s special tent was set up at the headquarters in Zabeel East, Jebel Ali Power Station, the Sustainable Building in Al Quoz, DEWA’s office at Al Hudaiba, and Warsan for over a week.

DEWA adorned its buildings and customer service offices with the colours of the UAE flag, unified the display of all electronic screens, and distributed brochures including photos and important information and events from the Union’s history, in addition to congratulating DEWA’s partners and customers via text messages and messages on its monthly bills.

DEWA’s external activities were marked by DEWA’s officials visiting various government departments in Dubai to enhance closer ties, and distribute special DEWA gifts to officials and employees.

DEWA’s Marketing and Corporate Communications Division organised a number of visits to the offices of local media to enhance closer ties, and congratulate members of the press.

DEWA also organised field trips to 170 homes since the beginning of November with the aim of enhancing closer ties with all segments of society and offering advice and guidelines regarding the best ways of using water and energy resources being a responsible organisation that contributes to protecting the country’s precious natural resources and boosting its endeavours to achieve sustainable development. Marketing & Corporate Communications also distributed 10-metre long UAE flags, pins and scarves that carry the logos of the 42nd National Day there. This was greatly appreciated in the neighbourhood, and saw over 50 homes hoisting these flags to promote this occasion. This campaign is now being extended to other areas.

Motivated by its keenness on consolidating the UAE’s national culture, DEWA’s Public Relations & Media Department launched the National Day Contest via Al Bayan Newspaper and DEWA’s official Twitter page @DEWA_Official. DEWA also honoured the local media outlets in appreciation of their role in supporting national initiatives and activities. The official celebration for National Day will be held today and tomorrow and DEWA welcomes everyone to join the festivities on this important occasion.
