The initiative is a message of gratitude from His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, who has many a time highlighted the fundamental role played by the nation's doctors, nurses, paramedics, and administrative and technical staff, who are working round the clock to ensure public safety and health in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
