Dubai Committee for Workers Affairs promotes tolerance, happiness

DUBAI, 30th December, 2018 (WAM) — Major General Obaid Muhair bin Sorour, Deputy Director of the General Administration of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai and Chairman of the Permanent Committee for Workers Affairs, highlighted the UAE’s keenness to support migrant workers, in light of its belief in the rights of all individuals to have decent living conditions, and its awareness that this category of workers contribute to the country’s development process, while noting that the UAE leads the world in supporting and protecting the rights of workers.

He added that the committee’s approach is based on protecting the rights of workers and providing for their social needs, as well as ensuring decent living and working conditions, which was established by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and continued by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He also noted the committee’s plan to cooperate with Emaar Real Estate to provide large TV screens in AlQoz and Al Muhaisen, to broadcast the New Year 2019 celebrations in Burj Khalifa, Dubai, with the aim of benefitting hundreds of workers.

The Islamic Affairs and Charity Work Department and Bait Al Khair in Dubai will support the initiative by distributing free meals to workers, to promote happiness and celebrate the Year of Tolerance, he added.
