It gives me great pleasure to see the great cross-community effort that has made this event a tremendous achievement. Ladies from across the UAE came forward to donate their gently-used designer bags and accessories for the final Charity Sale which was well attended by other women from the community who purchased these donated items to benefit the Mohammed bin Rashid Charitable Humanitarian Foundation. This confirms once again that women in the United Arab Emirates are keen to contribute to charitable endeavours to spread the spirit of solidarity among society."
