A community champion won the royal seal of approval after receiving a call of congratulations from Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed.

The Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces delivered a message of support to Ghobaisha Al Ketbi after learning of her sterling efforts to support others.

The Emirati citizen, who lives in the Al Shuwaib area of Al Ain, generously provided iftar meals throughout Ramadan for police officers.

She has continued to dish out food for officers in the weeks since.

During the call, Sheikh Mohamed hailed Ms Al Ketbi as a role model for fellow Emirati women who exemplified the finest values of love and loyalty for her country.

"We are proud of her and her initiatives in serving the nation and society, and what she does is appreciated and we are grateful to her," Sheikh Mohamed said.

"The leadership of the UAE and society cherish these positive and benevolent examples of citizens and residents, and appreciate their sincere efforts for the country with their community initiatives in various circumstances."

Ms Al Ketbi expressed her appreciation for the backing from the Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and vowed to continue to offer a helping hand when needed.
