His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, accompanied by H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, yesterday visited the family of the late Obeid Mohammed Abdullah Al Helou, and met with his widow Fatima Ibrahim bint Sulaiman, on the occasion of the Mother's Day.
"On Mother’s Day, I was honoured to visit Fatima Ibrahim bin Suleiman, widow of Obeid Al Helou. I had heard a lot about her, she is an Emirati mother who devotes herself not only to her family, but also to her community. We thank her, and all mothers, today and every day," Sheikh Mohammed said on Twitter.
The late Obeid Al Helou was known for his humanitarian work and support for the underprivileged, and his wife has continued the legacy of her husband to serve both the community and follow-up with the many projects outside the UAE.
