An individual of the ruling family of Fujairah came in to support a significant clean-up drive which is being carried out in the city after flash floods resulted in widespread damage to homes and properties.
The Ruler of Fujairah, Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi’s son Sheikh Dr Rashid bin Hamad Al Sharqi was seen wading through floodwaters, assisting to clean debris and comforting those hit hard by continuous torrential rains.
The chairman of Fujairah Culture and Media Authority, Sheikh Dr Rashid, was commended by social media users after his videos helping people went viral for his sense of community spirit as well as compassion.
In one of the videos, Sheikh Dr Rashid was seen consoling an older woman who was in tears after the heaviest rain in the country in decades, which led to flash floods that damaged her home.
He comforts the woman while telling her that the house will be renovated and will be in even better condition than before.
Sheikh Dr Rashid also personally visited several damaged homes during the hazy weather conditions, helping to bring hope to those who have recently suffered.
The pictures and videos were circulated widely on social media, with several expressing their thanks.
Nabeel Al Ali said on Twitter that their rulers are teaching them humanity and humility. May God protects them.
The Crown Prince of Fujairah, Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad Al Sharqi, visited Fujairah Exhibition Centre to thank volunteers who have responded to the call to clean roads and homes and help the lives of people in the emirate return back to normality.
The Minister of Community Development, Hessa Buhumaid, joined him during his visit.
Several people have also taken part in the campaign “Together Hand in Hand”, which was established by the UAE authorities to clean streets and other flood-hit areas of the country.
