H.H. Sheikha Sana Al Maktoum Visits the Green Planet with Underprivileged Children

by Eddie Rayner

H.H. Sheikha Sana Al Maktoum has recently visited Dubai’s only indoor rainforest, The Green Planet, accompanied by 15 orphans and other underprivileged children. The visit was arranged in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent, which is currently taking care of the children.

During the visit, the children enjoyed close encounters with The Green Planet’s plethora of exotic wildlife, including the region’s only bearcat. The children also had their senses further ignited as they were treated to experiences such as the Rainforest Thunderstorms, and Creatures of The Night, where nocturnal animals can be watched live in action during the day.

Sheikha Sana has long been passionate about women empowerment and children’s education and has been on the ground working on discovering what women and children need – from creating and donating a painting called ’63’4 for the Art 4 Sight auction organised by Noor Dubai and Sotheby’s to help raise money for the visually impaired, to celebrating UAE National Day with children of determination at Al Noor Training Centre and hosting a lunch for orphans in collaboration with Red Crescent UAE.

“I was delighted to host a special group of children from Emirates Red Crescent in collaboration with The Green Planet. 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. 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 said.
