Staff of Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) marked Commemoration Day by observing a minute of silence at 11:30 am. They prayed to Allah Almighty for the UAE martyrs to rest in peace in heaven, and for the martyrs’ families to be given patience and strength.
While the National Anthem was played, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of DEWA, raised the UAE flag at DEWA’s head office. He was accompanied by DEWA’s Executive Vice Presidents. DEWA employees watched the event on a live stream on an internal portal.
“On Commemoration Day, we salute our Emirati martyrs whose sacrifices represent the noblest examples of loyalty, belonging, altruism, and giving. They sacrificed their lives while performing their national, military and humanitarian duties bravely, to keep the UAE flag fluttering high, protect our nation’s gains, defend our rights, and ensure our peace and security. We are proud of the noble and historic policies of the wise leadership of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE; His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai; and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces. They defend our rights, help brotherly nations, support those in need, and achieve peace. This highlights the UAE’s pivotal role regionally and internationally,” said Al Tayer.
“On this solemn day, we pledge to remain loyal soldiers for this generous nation and its wise leadership. We are ready to answer the nation’s call at any time, praying to Allah Almighty, to bless the nation’s martyrs and provide solace for their families. We vow to remember their sacrifices as a beacon of good citizenship; through giving, excellence and hard work to pay back our nation, preserve its gains and contribute to its development and prosperity,” added Al Tayer.
DEWA staff emphasised that the martyrs embody the best examples of giving and sacrifice. The employees stand behind the wise leadership to answer the nation’s call of duty at any time, in gratitude for the martyrs and their belonging to this homeland.
