Sami’s presentation showed how we can all be involved in acts of kindness by sharing our most valuable asset: time.  In March, Sami’s wife Anna launched a Facebook group, InThisTogetherUAE, to provide support to individuals and mentoring for small businesses struggling through the Covid-19 crisis.

What started as a platform offering individuals emotional and practical support such has fetching groceries or medication, soon evolved into a fully-fledged group of more than 600 members and 30 volunteers, from healthcare professionals and psychologists to homeschooling and eLearning experts, lawyers and employment agencies.
