The number of new COVID-19 infections in the UAE has consistently dropped for a week and the number of recoveries has seen a steady rise. As we celebrate this positive news, it is tremendously important to recognize and honor the relentless efforts of our frontline workers. While most of us took to the safety of our homes, those at the frontlines stepped out to combat the deadly microscopic virus – putting our lives before their own.
As the world celebrates the heroic efforts of healthcare workers and others at the frontlines, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, has gone above and beyond in thanking Dubai’s hardworking heroes.

The Crown Prince of Dubai took to Instagram to share a spectacular video expressing gratitude towards the exceptional efforts of the frontline workers. The two-minute-long video, developed by Brand Dubai, in partnership with Done Events of Arab Media Group, AO Drones, and several government entities begins with an inspiring quote by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, “There is no ‘impossible’ where there is faith and determination.”
The video captures the streets, skies, and monuments of Dubai lighting up with unique messages of gratitude. In a choreographed display, more than 100 emergency vehicles lined up to form the word “Thank You”, while landmarks like the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, and The Dubai Frame lit up with messages “To The UAE”, “To Our People”, and “To Our Heroes”, both in English and Arabic.
What steals the show, however, is a magnificent display of drones that lit up the night sky with various formations that include a flag of the UAE, a portrait of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and a “Thank You” message for the frontline heroes.
The video also highlights the powerful message, “Stronger Together” by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who also shared an emotional gratitude letter in appreciation of the frontline bravehearts last week.
“You are today’s finest soldiers, the barrier between us and the pandemic. We cannot thank you enough for your spirit that protects our nation.”
“Thank you for putting our safety before yours. You have set an example for the heroes to come. Your sacrifice is inspiring, humbling, and a legacy that our history will remember forever”, said the Crown Prince of Dubai.
