The UAE’s legacy of giving looks set to continue.

How’s this for taking your daughter to work?

HRH Princess Haya bint Hussein is clearly modelling some very important values to her family (and the rest of us). The royal has shared an image of her young daughter, Sheikha Al Jalila, getting involved with Dubai’s International Humanitarian City.

Accompanied by Filippo Grandi, head of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the pair posed with a frame to show they stand with refugees.


HRH Princess Haya wrote in her caption that she was proud of the partnership between the UN’s commission and the IHC.

“At the core of this collaboration, we aim to provide for refugees in crisis who are in greatest need of help,” she said.

“The IHC is committed to continuing to support the UNHCR, to ensure the protection of the people they serve through the quick and efficient deployment of emergency core relief items.”

Back in January, it was announced that the IHC would be home to a distribution centre for energy-rich biscuits used by the UN in its famine relief efforts.

“HRH Princess Haya is a true champion for people facing hunger and poverty, and our appreciation for her dedication and support for WFP grows greater each year,” said the World Food Programme’s head, David Beasley, at the time.

Now, it looks like Sheikha Al Jalila is starting to get involved in those efforts.

“Thank you, Filippo Grandi and all of your team at the UNHCR for your amazing work and for inspiring new generations to make our world a better place,” wrote HRH Princess Haya on Instagram.

That’s the kind of Sunday inspiration we need.
