ABU DHABI, Over 7,000 families and 2,000 minors have benefitted from the services rendered by the Social Care and Minors Affairs Foundation, SCMAF.

He told the Emirates News Agency, WAM, that the SCMAF, continuing on the path established by the country’s founder, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to enhance social and humanitarian values, has been directing attention to minors and their parents since its foundation, adding that caring for them was one of the priorities of Sheikh Zayed, and is continuing today under the directives of the counry’s wise leadership.

The related gatherings organised by the SCMAF are based on the vision of Abu Dhabi to provide top-notch social care services that guarantee stable future for minors and create a safe environment conducive for creativity and performance-led culture, he added.
