“DEWA attaches great importance to all segments of the society, especially senior Emiratis. This is in gratitude to those who built the renaissance of the UAE. We are very proud of our senior Emiratis, who are our role models. His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, once observed: ‘They are senior in experience, in service to this country and the highest in our eyes and hearts.’. The UAE is based on people and we attach greater importance to our senior citizens, with an integrated system to make them happy, and provides all means to ensure their comfort. We are keen on their participation in community activities, so they can be aware of their rights and how we can take care of them. We learn from the first generation, a culture of giving, dedication and loyalty. We also learn from their experiences and knowledge and strive to transfer it to the next generations,” said HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA.“Senior citizens are the nation’s wealth and an indispensable part of our society. DEWA is committed to its social responsibility and the directives of the wise leadership to ensure social, financial, health stability for the senior citizens.
