This is amazing.

You might be aware many lucky residents received a call from HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai in honour of UAE National Day. The incoming call came from the number 1971 and included a pre-recorded message from His Highness.

But not EVERYONE got the call, and a viral video shows some ecstatic kids taking the call while one young girl is clearly distraught when she didn't get the message.

He then comforted her at her home in Al Ain

"You are my daughter, may God bless you. Now you can tell everyone that you met me personally"

An amazing gesture from Dubai's ruler!
