It represents the great values that have been championed by our founding fathers and the nation’s wise leadership since the country’s establishment, the foremost of which is humanitarian service and supporting communities suffering from crises and conflicts. We thank the Sharjah National Day Celebrations Committee for this generous donation of the proceeds from the concert at Khorfakkan Amphitheatre’s concert, which will go a long way in supporting people most in need around the world.”
