Emirates Central Cooling Systems Corporation (Empower), the world’s largest district cooling services provider, celebrated 45th National Day at its premises.
On Tuesday (29 November 2016), Empower joined other government institutions and departments and hosted a special outdoors program outside the headquarters building, featuring traditional activities, food, kiosks selling traditional items, musical performance by children, culinary competition, inter-departmental competition for best designed lunch for staff among others. Also, the day included internal competition for the best decorated department as different nationalities came together and joined hands as one team. Moreover, old people participated by reciting poems and telling old stories. A school as well has participated in the schools’ show on the day.
“On this occasion, we extend our greetings to HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE President, and HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and to their Highnesses members of the UAE Supreme Council, Rulers of the Emirates, and Crown Princes,” said HE Ahmad bin Shafar, CEO of Empower.
HE Ahmad bin Shafar stressed that home is where our hearts, it’s the place of our youth, and first steps, and our homeland is the symbol of happiness. We must believe that the national identity is embodied in every action and in all activities of life. The loss of national identity means the fragmentation of the society. That’s why the person feels sincere longing for his homeland.
Our celebration emphasises our great and sincere appreciation to the union and true expression of love, belonging and loyalty to the wise leadership.
