As one of many community initiatives implemented by the Department of Community Development (DCD)
the new Multi-Faith Prayer Room reflects the UAE’s reputation as a global destination for the many millions who live, work, invest and seek medical treatment in the country.
In addition, the opening of the Multi-Faith Prayer Room strengthens the DCD’s efforts to offer multiple places of worship in Abu Dhabi, in-line with Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s position as a major treatment destination, attracting patients and visitors from around the world
To mark the occasion, H.E. Dr. Mugheer Khamis Al Khaili, Head of the DCD, stressed how the wise leadership of Abu Dhabi is keen to provide a dignified life for all residents, of all cultures, nationalities and religions. In line with this direction, the DCD is committed to support initiatives and projects that enhance the quality of life of all members of the community.
The Multi-Faith room initiative emphasizes a growing awareness with regards to the need to promote tolerance and coexistence within all aspects of society, allowing for the creation of a unified community based on the idea of tolerance and respect, with individuals promoting sustainable development in Abu Dhabi.
The DCD started granting licenses for the establishment of multifaith-prayer rooms in September, a step considered as another achievement to be added to the Department’s list of accomplishments since its establishment.
