ABU DHABI, -- The Ministry of Energy, in co-operation with the Red Crescent, has organised a reading session for students from the UAE-Jordanian Mrajeeb Al Fhood Camp for Syrian refugees, as part of its efforts to contribute to strengthening the Arabic language and establishing a universal love for reading.

The reading session saw the participation of Dr. Mattar Hamed Al Neyadi, Under-Secretary of the Ministry, and Abdullah Al Mehrezi, Director of the UAE-Jordanian Mrajeeb Al Fhood Camp, as well as a number of officials from the Ministry of Energy.

This session is being held as part of the Year of Giving and National Reading Month.

Dr. Al Neyadi said that organising this session at the school at the UAE-Jordanian camp for Syrian refugees, highlights the UAE's desire to strengthen national and social unity, which represents a symbol for continually building civilisation and culture at a time when reading represents a symbol for elevating thoughts and people. "The move represents the UAE's vision in achieving the highest standards for advancing humanity, and especially future generations from different backgrounds, as well as their culture, science and civilisation, to be able to build what war has destroyed, using science, knowledge and optimism."

The Ministry of Energy recently opened the "Hope" science and computer laboratory for the school's students, with contributions from the Ministry of Energy's employees, in order to strengthen awareness about the importance of spreading the concept of the knowledge economy, to achieve sustainable development for future generations.
