Ajman ruler helps family of girl born with rare tumor

In a noble gesture that exemplifies the humanitarian initiatives of the rulers in UAE and also stands testament to the ethos of the ‘Ýear of Zayed’, His Highness Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, has come to the rescue of a Moroccan girl born with a rare form of tumor. The Ruler of Ajman had earlier sponsored the costs of the surgery required to treat the tumor. The child, Malak, was born with the rare tumor on her head that was shaped almost like a second head.

Owing to the kind gesture of the Ruler of Ajman, the child received free treatment at the Sheikh Zayed Hospital in Rabat. The ruler also gifted her family a well-equipped home in Skhirat, Morocco and promised to help with the cost of future treatment if the need arises. In addition, Sheikh Humaid also helped the child’s father find suitable employment.

Sheikh Humaid received the child’s family at his official residence on Friday and enquired about the welfare of little Malak. The child’s father was overwhelmed with gratefulness at the Ruler’s efforts and expressed his sincerest hope that the UAE and its people would prosper further in the coming years.
