H.H. Sheikh Mohamed steps in to help 3-year-old Afghan boy


A three-year-old boy has been receiving cancer treatment in the United States, thanks to His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

His Highness directed the transfer of Muhammed Aamir Dawood from his temporary home in Abu Dhabi's Emirates Humanitarian City to the US so he gets the medical care he needs.

A team led by Sheikh Theyab bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Chairman of Abu Dhabi Crown Prince's Court, first visited the boy and his family to get an understanding of the medical condition before the decision to fly him out was made.

Sheikh Mohamed noted the UAE will spare no effort in fulfilling its humanitarian mission.

Sheikh Theyab also met with a number of Afghan families who are temporarily hosted by the Emirates Humanitarian City and talked to them about their stay in the city and the services provided to them.
