Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed welcomed the attendees, representatives of the supporting companies who began their journey with TBHF since its first year and continued their continuous giving. 

He praised the efforts that come in accordance with the directives and vision of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, and the patronage of His Highness’s wife, Her Highness the Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Chairperson of The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF), in consolidating the principles of humanitarian work, developing its mechanisms, and sustaining its impacts. In addition to the unlimited support for the foundation’s initiatives, projects, and campaigns.

He thanked and appreciated everyone who participated in achieving the aspirations and vision of the foundation, and supported the humanitarian work that contributed to securing the natural rights of victims of conflicts, disasters and poverty, and helping them to integrate into host societies and contribute to their uplift and advancement, through various programmes and projects implemented by TBHF.

He stressed that the meeting comes to appreciate and highlight the contributions made by entities and companies since the foundation’s inception and to serve as a role model and example for others, in order to attract more shareholders and philanthropists, which leads to an increase in charitable aid, especially in light of the crises, natural disasters and displacement that the world is witnessing.

He maintained that TBHF, with the support of those loyal to its vision, has saved millions of people from the challenges of need, despair and loneliness, and has established factors for the advancement of societies through sustainable projects that have been developing and bearing fruit for many years. 

He pointed out that the great impact of humanitarian work goes beyond traditional spaces to build human awareness among those who are deprived of the necessities of life by circumstances, so they in turn become proactive in helping and supporting others.

Concluding his statement, he expressed his pride in being a member of this foundation and its humanitarian envoy and being one of the contributors to the charitable work provided by the foundation. He highlighted that the subsidies and assistance provided by shareholders and supporters go entirely to the beneficiaries and the needy, with the government taking care of all administrative expenses in order to provide the largest number of aid around the world.

In turn, Mariam Al Hammadi, Director General of The Big Heart Foundation (TBHF), thanked and appreciated all the foundation’s supporters and partners, including individuals and institutions from inside and outside the country, noting that the foundation has become one of the most prominent humanitarian work institutions in the entire world due to the continuous support and strategic partnerships that the foundation enjoys.

She said: “Today we celebrate the journey of ten years, and we are preparing for many years to come of giving and joint work, and of developing our strategies and ways of dealing with crises, disasters and human tragedies. We have learned during our humanitarian journey that crises put individuals and groups in a critical emotional state, so we are keen, through our continuous work, to convey our message to them, and tell them, we are with you, we stand by your side, we feel your pain, and you will not be alone in facing difficult circumstances, and that everything we do towards you is not a favour, but rather it is a natural right for you and a moral, religious and humanitarian duty on us and on all societies around the world.”

The meeting came on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the launch of the humanitarian and development journey of TBHF, which began in 2013 as a humanitarian campaign concerned with the issues of Syrian refugees. Today, its efforts, programmes and projects reach dozens of countries around the world, leaving positive impacts on the lives of millions in needy communities and places of asylum and displacement.

The Deputy Ruler of Sharjah kindly presented memorial shields to the supporting entities, institutions and shareholders, appreciating their efforts and wishing them success and their continued support of charitable work at the level of all charitable entities.

The attendees expressed their appreciation and gratitude to Sheikh Sultan bin Ahmed Al Qasimi for receiving them, and for praising the support provided to the foundation, appreciating the great efforts made by the foundation in providing a decent living for needy families around the world.
