  • Afaf Al Marri: Social Care Law protects and preserves the rights
Sharjah24: Afaf Al Marri, Head of Sharjah Social Services Department (SSSD), lauded the Law No (6) of 2020 issued by His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohamed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, regarding to the social care in Sharjah.
She noted that the new law complements the protection laws and regulations of the emirate, adding that SSSD has been assigned by law since 1985 to take care of the children with unknown parents, a law which was then amended 102006 to include abused children.

The new law, she added, includes further categories such as children with unknown parents, children of a known mother but unproven father, children with no guardian of caretaker, children deprived of the care of their guardians of caretakers.

She added that SSSD is keen to provide care and protection to these categories, as part of its vision to have a safe, stable, and prosperous community.
