In order to promote the people of discrimination, the Emirates Post has issued a set of distinctive commemorative stamps.
This initiative is led by the Ministry of Community Development, labelling the new symbol as an outlook on disability in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This will help bring some recognition towards the people of discrimination as active, dynamic, and vibrant members of the increasing community.
The design of the logo had instruction from His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the Vice President and the Prime Minister of the UAE and Rule of Dubai.
According to information made available, he was present during the launch of the National Policy for Empowering People of Determination which aims to encourage their social inclusion into varied areas of educational, practical and social life.
The new logo also improves on the stillness and dependency from the old logo. The sharp edges are used to express the adaptability that people of determination embody when accepting the changes in their lives and recognizes them as active and productive individuals.
Nasser Ismail, Assistant Undersecretary of Social Care, said,
As one of the leading countries in the world to support the rights of people of determination, the UAE is continuously raising the standards for embracing them as an integral part of the community and ensuring their social integration. By collaborating and partnering with numerous social organizations and entities, the Ministry of Community Development was able to provide people of determination with a comprehensives range of tools that helps them achieve a better quality of life. We will continue to prioritize them as a national and social responsibility and strive for their full inclusion.
This new logo will highlight the importance and be placed in places where they will be provided services and facilities. Some of these places include centers, clubs, people of determination associations, hotels, parks, restaurants and cafes, airports, parking areas, transportation, and other recreational, cultural and social facilities.
