Playground and study halls to be set up for children of inmates at Dubai jail

The order was issued by Sheikha Rawda bint Maktoum on Tuesday

A playground and study halls will be set up for the children of women serving time a prison in Dubai.

Sheikha Rawda bint Maktoum issued the order on Tuesday on the side lines of a ceremony organised by Dubai’s punitive establishments.

She attended the event with her four children to celebrate with the children of the imprisoned women and to hand out presents.

“Our UAE is a giving country, the country of ongoing generosity where humanitarian initiatives never stop and I thought of participating in the culture of giving that we inherited from our Founding Father and from my father by giving imprisoned women something that would bring joy to their hearts,” she said.
