Today, Mother’s Day is celebrated in the UAE and to mark the day, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai sat down with a widow who has devoted her life to giving.
The late Obeid Al Helou was known for his humanitarian work and support of the needy and his family have continued his work with many donations in his name since. HH Sheikh Mohammed taking the time to meet his widow is an incredible mark of respect.
This woman devoted her time to her family and the wider community

“On Mother’s Day .. I was happy to visit Fatima Ibrahim bin Suleiman, the widow of Obeid Al Helou .. I heard all good things about her .. She is an Emirati mother who did not only devote herself to her family, but also to the community in the work of continuous goodness and giving .. Thank you to all mothers .. Happy mother’s day to all the mothers in the UAE and in the world.”
Hh Sheikh Mohammed
The people’s reaction is one of praise
تعد نموذجاً للفخر والاعتزاز بما حققته من نجاحات وتميز ، وما تحظى به من دعم وتشجيع من الحكومة الرشيدة حتى أصبحت اليوم شريك نجاح وإنجاز وتطور وبناء للمستقبل لاسرتها والمجتمع.
