In Full Alignment with Abbvie’s Strategy in Working Closely with Different Non-Governmental Organizations & Charity Associations

AbbvieUAE, June 21, 2015 “In AbbVie Biopharmaceuticals South Gulf​, we understand the true meaning of cooperation and solidarity, and have thus set off on a journey to manifest gratitude and admiration to all people, and to demonstrate, to the best of our capacity, our responsibility of improving the lives of people in need in the community we operate in.”

By having the 2nd consecutive year volunteer initiatives known as A Day to Remember with Helping hands! AbbVie has engaged its employees in UAE to stimulate enhancement of society’s sustainability through active participation in local volunteer activities on Saturday June 6, 2015. As a testimonial of Social Responsibility, AbbVie South Gulf is partnering with one of UAE’s prestigious NGOs Dubai Charity Association   well known for its care for orphans as well as the under privileged through creative community programs with special recognition of HRH Princess Haya for their orphans’ programs.

AbbVie partnered with them in sponsoring orphans for an education day in an inspiring arts and crafts location, whereby the artist in all of us will be given free rein to paint beautiful individual works of art. Arts and crafts are identified as a highly effective way that allows children the freedom to explore and innovate outside places and activities. . Gift bags for the children and the caregivers were given as well.

Quoting one of AbbVie’s volunteers Sami Abi Nakhoul General manager South Gulf countries “Drawing a smile on people’s faces is a challenging task by itself, however there is nothing more rewarding and overwhelming than succeeding in doing it. No words can describe the expression on the faces of the children and our employees when we reached the end of the day. It was a rewarding and humbling experience, and through it we demonstrated the AbbVie’s real spirit and values, working as one to have our true reward from the kids’ smiles.”
