"At Noor Dubai Foundation, we've treated 18 million people with trachoma - one of the main Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) causing blindness; rolled out 87 million doses of medicine; conducted over 350,000 eye surgeries; and trained 50,000 health workers," Sheikh Mohammed tweeted on January 29.

The tweet came on the occasion of the World Neglected Tropical Diseases Day.
