Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: The Family Care Authority (FCA) provided its holistic family care, social, and psychological services to Palestinian patients and children flown over from Palestine with their families.

Through its services, the FCA seeks to positively impact the lives of injured children, young cancer patients, and their accompanying families by supporting them and alleviating their suffering.

HE Dr Bushra, Director General of the Family Care Authority, stated: "The children of Palestine hold a special place in our hearts, and we are privileged to extend a warm welcome to them and their families. Embracing them as our own, we are dedicated to supporting Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan's initiative to provide medical care for Palestinian children and 1,000 cancer patients from the Gaza Strip. It is our responsibility to ensure that they feel at home here in Abu Dhabi as part of this noble cause. The Family Care Authority is fully committed to delivering a comprehensive range of family care services, encompassing social, psychological, and family counselling, to complement the medical care they receive."
