Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan is undeniably one of the most popular women in the world. She is an inspiring royal who works tirelessly to change the face of the modern monarchy with around 3.87 million Twitter followers and social media accounts on Instagram, Youtube and Facebook.
From domestic issues that face her country, to being an outspoken supporter of women’s rights and education, Queen Rania’s dedication to humanitarian activities has made her an ambassador to many charities in various sectors of Jordan and international organizations around the world.
During this Holy Month of Ramadan, we share her photo diary as she steps out in style to inspire and encourage peace and education in Jordan and the Middle East.
In preparation for Ramadan, which, apart from abstinence, is also a time of compassion and helping out those who are less fortunate, Queen Rania joined young Jordanian volunteers as they prepared packages to be distributed to underprivileged families at Ras Al Ain Gallery and Hangar in Amman.
Wearing a denim jacket and sleek white skirt, the busy royal then headed to a meeting with another group of volunteers. She expressed her deep pride in the work they do to contribute to their communities and explained that individuals’ efforts might seem trivial, but when they collaborate and build partnerships among each other can have a significant impact.
The Queen said: “It’s not just about the positive effect you bring about but also the high level of commitment that you have shown not only in times of crisis, but throughout the whole year”.
Queen Rania accompanied her husband His Majesty King Abdullah II on a visit to the Al Hussein Social Foundation for Orphans. The King examined the living conditions of 125 children to ensure they have a loving and caring home. The royal couple commended the efforts and dedication of the foundation’s staff in performing their humanitarian duty to the orphans.
Queen Rania dazzled in a purple dress with yellow and pink accents as she hosted women representatives who are active in a variety of sectors for Iftar at Raghadan Palace.
King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah visited Al Hussein Society/Jordan Centre for Training and Inclusion and ensured services and care are provided to physically disabled children in the centre.
Children who gathered around their the royal couple, performed practical training through educational and therapeutic programs, developed to promote a better future for them, and thus rehabilitate and reintegrate them as active individuals in their families and community.
His Majesty the King instructed the Royal Hashemite Court personnel to provide the Centre with all its requirements of devices, equipment and furniture, as well as a mobile clinic. The King also gave instructions to provide the centre, in coordination with the Royal Medical Services, with materials for an artificial limb programme, medical devices and aids kinetic operator, so they can be manufactured according to the centre’s needs and beneficiaries’ services.
Each year during the month of Ramadan, Queen Rania dedicates more of her time to charitable activities close to her heart.
The tireless Queen once revealed: “I just wake up and feel like a regular person. At the end of the day you are living your life for the people that you represent. It’s an honour and a privilege to have that chance to make a difference – a qualitative difference in people’s lives – and it’s my responsibility to make the most out of that opportunity.”
