The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi calls women the ones who keep families together and raise heroes


Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed has called women the symbol of “goodness and giving” in his Mother’s Day tribute.

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces took to Twitter on Monday to praise the selfless mothers in the UAE and across the world.

Mother’s Day is held on March 21 each year in the UAE.

As he does every year, Sheikh Mohamed paid tributes to mothers on this special occasion.

In a heartwarming video, he highlighted the role played by mothers in raising children.

He called them the ones who “anchor families and raise heroes”.

“The values and morals they instil in their children influence generations to come,” he said on Twitter.

“On Mother’s Day and every day, we reaffirm our love and gratitude towards them and pray for their everlasting wellbeing and happiness.”
