Her Highness Sheikha Sana Al Maktoum is constantly giving back to the local community.
Most recently, Her Highness hosted a group of orphans and underprivileged children on a special outing in Dubai.
In collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent, Sheikha Sana visited The Green Planet, the only indoor rainforest in the emirate, where she accompanied the children on this unique experience.
The children and Sheikha Sana visited the exotic wildlife in the indoor rainforest and also got to see the region’s only bearcat, as well as experience rainforest thunderstorms and see nocturnal animals up close during the day.
Following the outing, Her Highness shared her joy at being able to experience the special outing with the group.
“I was delighted to host a special group of children from Emirates Red Crescent in collaboration with The Green Planet,” she said. “It gave me so much joy to see the wonder and delight in their eyes as we walked through the bio-dome and interacted with many animals and birds.”
She added: “I would like to thank Dubai Holding Entertainment for doing an amazing job in creating and providing such an engaging learning environment for the children of today. I’m sure they will remember this experience throughout their lifetime.”
Sheikha Sana – the founder of Sana Al Maktoum Fine Jewellery and former Emirates Woman cover star – is no stranger to giving back to the community.
Most recently Her Highness inaugurated a brand new breast clinic at Fakeeh University Hospital based in Dubai. Earlier this year, Sheikha Sana also hosted a special lunch in collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent for orphans at Tashas Cafe.
In our April 2021 cover shoot with Sheikha Sana, she previously shared with Emirates Woman her desire to partner with education-related charities, with a focus on women and children.
“I was blessed to be born in the UAE, a safe haven to people from various backgrounds, where women are respected and treated equally, but I know that there are many who are not as blessed,” she said. “I hope to help change this by partnering with charities supporting the education of young children and women’s empowerment.”
