Mohammed Bin Rashid launches ‘Thank You’ Campaign

WAM Dubai, Dec 30th, 2012 (WAM) — Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has urged that the Accession Day celebrations this year, be dedicated to thank and honor general labor staff such as domestic workers, janitors, public transportation drivers, construction workers, office support workers and others in different categories.

Sheikh Mohammed tweeted asking all concerned authorities not to mark any celebrations for his Accession Day on January 4, as there are other important segments of the community that deserve our appreciation and gratitude, urging the celebrations to be held with them this year. He recalled the last Accession Day celebrations, where he dedicated to honor orphans as well as mothers.

The vice president also tweeted that workers in these categories play an active role in our society. “Some of them have spent many years doing a great job and they deserve a big �thank you’ from the community,” he observed. “We want to thank them, celebrate with them and let them know that their services are valued and respected as they make our lives better.” Dubai ruler said that kindness, humanity and compassion towards workers in these categories not only reflect the principles of our society, but also the Islamic values which encourage us to recognize the good service they undertake.

He concluded by inviting everyone to thank these groups by showing their appreciation or giving them gifts, posting their photos on Twitter, as well as other social media pages, and sharing them with him through his Twitter account (@HHShkMohd), because the goal is to spread the message of kindness, mercy and compassion in our society.
