(MENAFN - Arab News) Sayidaty held its annual charity celebration at the Atlantis hotel in Dubai with the presence of senior figures from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and leading Arab media personalities, in addition to a huge crowd of Arab and Gulf celebrities.

This year the celebration was launched under the title "Children of the Borders," a document presented by Sayidaty to support border children who live a daily life in camps that lack life's essentials. Displacement is on the increase due to violence in the Arab region and other countries in the world.

During his speech, Mohammed Fahad Al-Harthi, editor in chief of Sayidaty and Arab News, launched this year's humanitarian campaign to emphasize the increasing phenomenon of "Border Children."

Al-Harthi called on the audience to support this campaign and remember those children, especially since 5 million Arab children suffer in these camps. He called on those present to sign the document drafted by Sayidaty.

Sayidaty aims to collect as many signatures from readers and website visitors to support the campaign and present the document to the regional representative of the United Nations in the Arab region.

The ceremony was attended by Sheikh Juma' bin Maktoum Al-Maktoum, managing director of the Rashid Center for Child Welfare, public figures from the UAE, and a group of leading Arab media personalities, including Ali Al-Hadithi, deputy chairman of the board and general supervisor for MBC Group; Turki Al-Shabanah, the director of Rotana Channels in Saudi Arabia, Ali Jabir, general director of MBC, in addition to female personalities and businesswomen, among them Afraa' Al-Basti, member of the Federal National Council and general director for the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC); university professor, Dr. Aysha Saad l Busmait, director of RTA Marketing and Corporate Communication, in addition to number of media personalities, celebrities and public figures.


The 200 people who attended the ceremony signed the "Border Children" document and a document for dressing one million needy children campaign, an initiative launched by the Rashid Center for Child Welfare.

Children of the institute gave artistic performances, as well as dances that accompanied songs written especially for Sayidaty's campaign. Yahya Abdullah Al-Muieni, Red Crescent representative, distributed 300 bags to be sent to "Border Children" as a token gesture to encourage attendees to donate.

Al-Harthi described the gathering as extraordinary and pointed to the audience that Sayidaty was launched in its new form a few weeks ago, to better reflect the thoughts and feelings of its readers.

The ceremony contained many activities that included a musical performance by the stars of the Rashid Theatrical Band. Artists Fayez Al-Saeed, Diana Karazone and Yousif Al-Omani performed songs composed especially for children.

The editor in chief praised the campaign of Sheikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum to dress one million needy children and said it is a perfect image for social solidarity for Muslim society. Sheikh Juma' bin Maktoum signed the solidarity document with the campaign.

At the end of the ceremony, the chief editor and the managing director of Rashid Center exchanged honors. Al-Harthi and Mariam Othman, general director of Rashid Center honored four women for their outstanding performance.

The children of Rashid Center distributed gifts for innovators in hand crafts.
More than 50 artists and media personalities signed the document for "Covenant and Fulfillment" and Sayidaty's document for supporting "Border Children."
