Sultan orders 66 nurseries to be set up

Filed on October 4, 2012

Nearly 66 nurseries will be set up in Sharjah to take care of children and spare them negligence under new directives from His Highness Dr Shaikh Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah.

Passionately moved by a case broadcast by Dubai TV local news about an infant tortured by a housemaid, Shaikh Sultan gave his instructions for building these facilities through a call to ‘Direct Line’ programme broadcast by Sharjah TV and Radio, and described the incident as “brutal”.

He also appealed to parents to lend proper care and attention to their children.

“Leaving children to housemaids and not giving them proper care is a major issue in our community and people should lend attention to it,” the Ruler said, adding that he was pondering over the idea of setting up these nurseries throughout Tuesday and Wednesday.
