Children's Storybook Launch Event with His Highness Sheikh Abdullah

On November 2, 2016, Children’s National officially launched a children’s storybook, titled “A Very Special Place,” through a book-reading event at Tawam Hospital in Al Ain, UAE. His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, read the book aloud to a group of children currently undergoing treatment. After the event, His Highness met with a delegation from Children’s National, which included President and CEO, Dr. Kurt Newman. The idea for the book was inspired by the UAE’s Year of Reading initiative and long-standing friendship between Children’s National and the UAE.
