The Make-A-Wish International announced the selection of Abu Dhabi to host its annual conference, the "Global Wish" summit, on June 3 and 4 next year.

In this regard, wife of H.H. Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan, Advisor to the President of the UAE, Sheikha Sheikha bint Saif Al Nahyan, the honorary president of the Make-A-Wish Foundation UAE, stated, "We are proud of the Make-A-Wish International choice of Abu Dhabi to host this important global summit, which highlights Abu Dhabi's international reputation as a capital of humanity and tolerance.

Following in the footsteps of the late founding father Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi prioritises humanitarian work, becoming a model of local and global humanitarian giving. Abu Dhabi serves as a beacon of tolerance, inclusivity, and understanding, a place where people from all backgrounds, beliefs, and cultures come together in harmony and mutual respect."

She added, "Through our participation in this global forum, we have the opportunity not only to celebrate the remarkable achievements of the Make-A-Wish Foundation UAE but also to shed light on Abu Dhabi's role as a global centre for mercy and tolerance. Here in Abu Dhabi, we believe in the inherent dignity and worth of every individual, regardless of their circumstances or background. We embrace diversity, celebrate differences, and promote a culture of inclusivity that welcomes all."

Sheikha Sheikha concluded, "The Make-A-Wish Foundation UAE holds a special place in my heart because it embodies the spirit of compassion, generosity, tolerance, and humanity that distinguishes Abu Dhabi's character. For over two and a half decades, the foundation has dedicated its efforts to fulfilling the wishes of children suffering from life-threatening illnesses, bringing joy, hope, and strength to their lives and the lives of their families.

"I look forward to the 'Make-A-Wish International' summit highlighting our continued commitment to building a more compassionate and inclusive world, a world where every child has the opportunity to dream, hope, and experience the magic of a wish."
