Gala Night of Hope was organized under the parasol of UAE Embassy & FICCI and in support of Rashid Centre and Sun Foundation. It took place on 1 May 2017 at Taj Palace Hotel, New Delhi. On this spectacular evening, Approx 300 patrons came together to support the special needy children in their journey of living.

The event was held under the patronage and in the presence of H.H Sheikh Jumaa Bin Maktoum Al Maktoum (Managing Director of Rashid Center), H.E. Dr Ahmed Albanna (UAE Ambassador to India), H.E.

As we know that UAE’s President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan in support with His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice president and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai has declared 2017 as the Year of Giving. Giving’ which is a value we cherish and saw personified in the UAE’s Founding Father Sheikh Zayed. We still continue to see this philanthropic legacy embodied by his sons. They believe giving is not limited to monetary donations. Rather, “giving” is defined by the differences we make: the differences in someone’s life, in a society, or in a nation. Sheikh Zayed’s legacy is not measured in the generous donations he made to the less fortunate only, but in the impact he has had on the lives and in the country forever. This is the goal for the Year of Giving – to make a difference in the lives of those we care for, and in ourselves.

All of us have the capability and capacity to make a real difference in the lives of those around us. There are so many ways to give. This is how The UAE Embassy in New Delhi, under the direction of H.E. Dr Ahmed Al-Banna  along with Ficci, Rashid Centre and Sun Foundation got together and took an active part in spreading the value of tender and love to achieve the vision of UAE for the year of good by organizing a charity event ‘Gala Night of hope”.

This contributed to the deepening Relations between the two countries.
