'They are the eternal source of giving': Mohammed bin Zayed sends Mother's Day message
Crown Prince sends personal message honouring mothers
Across the UAE, everyone is taking a moment to remember the vital role played by mothers.
And Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, is no different, having sent a personal message to mark Wednesday's Mother's Day.
"For us, every day is a day to celebrate mothers for they are an eternal source of giving," he posted on Twitter.
"We are proud of their role in the family, community and nation, and we pray for their happiness."
The UAE has long honoured the vital role played by mothers.
This week, the Mother of the Nation festival is taking place on Abu Dhabi's Corniche. The festival celebrates the values of Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, wife of the late president Sheikh Zayed, and it runs until March 31.
