In a galaxy not so far, far away, twofour54 CEO Noura Al Kaabi and three Star Wars Stormtroopers paid a visit to children at Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi. The trip was in support of Her Highness Sheikha Shamma bint Sultan bin Khalifa Al Nahyan’s initiative, Wanna Read? and twofour54’s #United4UAE community initiative.

Al Kaabi and the Stormtroopers toured the hospital and held a story-reading session with young patients following the Middle East premiere of the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, which was held at Emirates Palace in Abu Dhabi last week.

“Visiting the children of Sheikh Khalifa Medical City with the Star Wars Stormtroopers today was a wonderful opportunity to put smiles on their faces and play my part in giving back to the community. said Noura Al Kaabi

“The children of today will be the leaders of tomorrow and each and every one of us has a responsibility to support and nurture future generations. Her Highness Sheikha Shamma’s initiative provides a unique environment for children to learn as they heal and I am proud to support this worthy charity through twofour54’s United4UAE initiative.”

Established in 2013, Wanna Read? is a non-profit organisation that creates colourful environments full of books and educational games for children at hospitals. #United4UAE was launched by twofour54 for the UAE’s 44th National Day to celebrate the nation’s unity in purpose, ambitions and to give back to the local community. Through the campaign, the organization pledges to devote 2,454 volunteer hours from its employees and partners to community organisations and charities including Emirates Red Crescent, the Wanna Read? initiative, and Special Care Centre.
