ABU DHABI — The deadline for nominations to the Abu Dhabi Awards has been extended to October 14 in order to ensure participation of citizens and residents of the emirate of Abu Dhabi, including Al Ain and the Western region. This has been done keeping in mind the upcoming Eid holidays.
Through the Abu Dhabi Awards, local residents are encouraged to take advantage of the Eid holidays to honour those who have carried out deeds of exemplary kindness and generosity for the good of the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Commenting on the event, Abu Dhabi Awards 2006 recipient Sana’a Darwish Al Kitby, who was honoured for her leadership role in the Red Crescent Society, said: “It only takes a few minutes to fill out a nomination form, but the impact it could have may be life-changing for the individual you are recognising. This is encouragement for them and others in our community to keep making a contribution.”
