A new authority dedicated to enhancing families’ lives has been formed in Abu Dhabi.

The President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan — in his capacity as Ruler of Abu Dhabi — has issued a law establishing the Family Care Authority, which will be part of Department of Community Development.

Awareness drives shall be rolled out to help instil good values, a strong sense of national identity, and raise awareness of families’ role in society.
