WAM Ras Al Khaimah, 23rd Nov. 2013 (WAM) -- H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Crown Prince of Ras Al Khaimah, has opened the ''Our Home is United'' majlis for elderly people as part of the initiative launched by Abu Dhabi Crown Prince's Court (CPC) employees.

The Al Bayt Mitwahid (Our Home is United) initiative aims to promote values of social solidarity and family cohesion and instill indigenous traditions and customs into young generations for preserving the spirit of cooperation, solidarity and tolerance among community members.

Syncharonised with the UAE's 42nd national day celebrations, the campaign seeks to promote the culture of giving, national work and celebrate the unity in implementation of the social responsibility principles towards the nation and citizens.

The name of the national initiative was inspired by a statement made by His Highness General Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.

Crown Prince of Ras Al Khaimah unveiled a memorial plaque, declaring the opening of the majlis in the presence of a number of chairmen of local departments, and Abdullah Al Neyadi, Head of Projects Unit at CPC, who said the majlis will serve as a cultural and social platform for elderly people in the emirate and compliment efforts made the State to serve the elderly people and meet their requirements. It will play host to cultural, social and national celebrations and events.

The elderly majlis, he added, is one of seven initiatives designed, planned, funded and implemented by the CPC team on education, environment, agriculture and fisheries, family, elderly people and persons with special needs across the seven emirates.

He said the majlis was designed on the Emirati heritage features to accommodate 150 persons and is fitted with all modern amenities and services to the convenience of the elderly people.
