Abu Dhabi: The humanitarian initiative ‘My Child’s Seat’ has been successful in calling on entities to fund and donate car seats, with the aim of preventing injuries and fatalities caused by traffic accidents.
The initiative was launched by The Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood (SCMC) in cooperation with the Ministry of Interior.
Rym Al Falasi, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council for Motherhood and Childhood, said the initiative has achieved its goals, with entities such as Thumbay Hospital in Dubai and community members having donated car seats for families in need.
Thumbay Moideen, the Founder President of Thumbay Group, said the hospital will distribute 400 child car seats across the UAE. The seats will be given to expectant mothers who book the delivery packages at Thumbay Hospitals in Dubai, Ajman and Fujairah, during the month of November.
“This campaign will not only help raise awareness among parents on the importance of their children’s safety, but will also inspire them to bring up their kids as law-abiding citizens. By taking the campaign’s message to expectant parents, Thumbay Hospital aims to ensure that the safety of each child begins from the time he/she leaves the hospital as a newborn,” said Moideen.
