Waheeda Abdul Aziz, Head of the Friends of Arthritis Patients Association, stated that organizing this initiative regularly comes as a translation to the vision of Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Wife of His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah and Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs, and her directives to enhance health awareness in the emirate by highlighting health issues that enhance Sharjah’s reputation as the leading healthy city in the region.

She also expressed her thanks to Sharjah Police for their cooperation with the association in ensuring the success of the important event.

During the “One Hour Walk 2” event, which is organized regularly at different locations in the Emirate of Sharjah, the association distributed leaflets to raise awareness on arthritis, offered free health tests to participants, and arranged many other sport and recreational activities.
