WATCH: Sheikh Mohammed visits little girl who didn’t get '1971' call
The youngster's disappointment turned to elation when the Ruler of Dubai dropped by
Tears turned to joy for an Emirati youngster who received a royal visit from Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid after missing out on a National Day call from the Ruler of Dubai.
Footage of Salama Al Qahtani crying was shared on social media this week as she was upset that she didn’t receive a dispatch from Sheikh Mohammed.
On the eve of the 47th UAE National Day, many residents received a call from a number that appeared as '1971' that had a prerecorded message from the Ruler of Dubai.
However, Salama got more than just a call - Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid granted her a personal visit.
In the video, that went viral on Tuesday, Sheikh Mohammed told the youngster: “The others I have just called but I have seen you.
“So you can say, ‘I met him,’ now I came to see you and drink coffee at your home”.
