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.

The pictures and videos were circulated widely on social media, with several expressing their thanks.
