‘Impossible is possible’

The message from the UAE government is clear: we stand together.

Amidst the current difficult times the UAE and countries around the globe are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government has issued an inspirational video which is giving us the hope we all need right now.

The impassioned footage encourages both UAE citizens and residents to put their trust in the nation, putting forward the message that the country and its occupants will emerge stronger after the pandemic and difficult times pass.

It also showcases how the nation welcomes people from all walks of life whether you’re a local or expat.

Clips are also shown of those in the medical fields on the frontline of the coronavirus battle.

Alongside the video that was released from the Prime Minister’s Office, a heartfelt statement was also issued.

“We stand here in solidarity in the country we call home,” the statement said. “In the leadership we unequivocally trust.

“In the nation that has given us new beginnings. This is the country where we have built our dreams. Our hopes. Our life. This is the place we belong. This is where we feel safe.”

The statement went on to note how this is the “biggest challenge” people and the country has face in “many generations”, but what is the saving grace is that all citizens and residents have “trust”.

“At a time when the world is facing the biggest challenge in many generations, the UAE has been strong and authoritative in its bid to protect all its citizens,” the statement continued. “UAE residents have followed each new directive in recent weeks for one principal reason — trust.

“It’s the same trust that has helped the country grow into a global force.

“It’s the same trust that has put the UAE on the world map. It’s the same trust that instils pride in all of us to be part of this great nation.”

The uplifting video ended on an emotional clip of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, reflecting on how he was moved to tears after seeing videos of UAE residents cheering and singing the national anthem, in support of those who are on the frontline of the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.

To date there has been 2,359 confirmed cases of coronavirus in the UAE — 186 people have recovered, while there has been 12 fatalities.
