Even as the stakes are high for Kuwait, as a mediator in the Qatar crisis, and even as the dilemma grows as to "what next", one Kuwaiti couple is spreading a beautiful message of love, peace and brotherly relations with the UAE.
Just one thing: The couple reside in Kuwait and have never ever been to the UAE!
To express their love, appreciation and respect for the UAE, the duo have named their new born baby "Emarat". Learning about this decision in the background of political turmoil, a UAE water company has announced a landmark decision to gift the new-born Baby Emarat free lifetime supply of water, that too in Kuwait!
Emarat was born to Kuwaiti parents on Saturday, July 1, 2017. She is their second child. "Although they have never even been to the UAE, so impressed are they with the wise and able leadership of the country and how it's run peacefully with people of so many nationalities living together, they named their daughter after it," a spokesperson for the mineral water brand Waiwera Artesian Water, told Khaleej Times.
Reinforcing its love and loyalty to the UAE, Waiwear made the decision to gift the newborn girl a free lifetime supply of water. "We came to know about Baby Emarat through social media and made an effort to reach them in order to gift the baby with a lifetime supply of Waiwera Water," the company spokesperson said.
The decision is the part of the company's strategy to support unique, UAE-focused initiatives. The decision is also in line with Waiwera's ongoing campaign launched in November 2016 to coincide with the UAE National Day celebrations.
Held under the theme 'Express Your Love for UAE', the company expressed their sense of belonging to the nation by distributing the UAE flag along with the Waiwera Artesian water bottles to residents across the country.
Ahmed Al Raeesi, chairman of Adyton One General Trading, the distributors of Waiwera water in the Middle East, said: "We would like to congratulate and appreciate the parents of Baby Emarat for this unique gesture and for honouring the UAE in this way, which clearly reflects their love for the country. We extend our warm wishes to Baby Emarat and the family.
"Waiwera is committed to the cause of the UAE. As a company, we salute the pioneering achievements of the wise leadership for their vision and country's growth march and aims to play a responsible role in this journey. We also extend our warm wishes to Baby Emarat and the family," he added.
