It is also a continuation to the wise drive set by His Highness Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE, which culminated in the promulgation of the Wadima Law, which provides for the preservation of the right of children to life, survival and development. We, at Abu Dhabi City Municipality, are honoured to be a key player in implementing this social and humanitarian wise strategy.”

"We, in the UAE, are proud of the humanitarian values and high social welfare enjoyed by families in the UAE community, especially children thanks to our wise leadership and the great care accorded by Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak (Mother of the UAE) who has taken the responsibility of supporting families, offering child care, and nurturing a natural environment that ensures healthy mental and physical health growth. The step offers the opportunity to mothers to have their children looked after on-site in a high-quality nursery. We are delighted to be one of the institutions that responded to the call of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood to make this achievement on childcare out of our commitment to children’s rights in celebration of this occasion,” added Al Qubaisi.

“Opening a nursery a the workplace on the UAE Child Day highlights the commitment of Abu Dhabi City Municipality to supporting its male and female employees, protecting children’s rights and allowing working parents to focus on their roles, knowing that their children are only moments away in a stimulating and safe environment that enables them to flourish.
