“To the UAE and to the world, Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum was a
diplomat, a regal figure who represented his people internationally. I wish
people could have known his fatherly side. He loved to create joy around him, and always had a warm smile across his face. He was thoughtful, and never
left anyone in need helpless.”
One year after Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s passing, this book is a
tribute to the man, the Sheikh, the father. Authored by his daughter, HH Sheikha Latfa bint Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, this book allows readers to discover the tremendous capacity for compassion, empathy, and philanthropy that HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum embodied throughout his life. HH Sheikha Latifa writes about how his family is upholding his most cherished values: generosity, kindness, charity, education, and the betterment of society. Though he was a staunchly private person who never boasted of his achievements or his contributions to the world, HH Sheikha Latifa wants the world to know about who he was, what he did, and how huge an impact he had on those who were touched by his grace.
