The General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs (GDRFA) in Dubai has announced four annual celebrations dedicated to workers in the emirate.

These events will coincide with Eid Al Fitr, Eid Al Adha, International Workers' Day and New Year.

The upcoming Eid Al Fitr celebrations will be held at three prominent locations in Dubai: Jebel Ali, Al Quoz, and Muhaisnah, from April 7 to April 12.

Workers attending the event will have the opportunity to win valuable prizes, including cars, gold bars, smartphones and discount cards.

Lieutenant General Mohammed Ahmed Al Marri, Director General of GDRFA Dubai, emphasised that the UAE's commitment to human rights, the well-being of workers and ensuring they lead dignified lives has boosted the country's development journey over the past 50 years.

"Valuing and honouring our workers and employees demonstrates our gratitude for their contributions and has a positive impact on work quality and productivity. Treating workers with respect is an investment in human capital that underpins the success of any thriving institution and society," he said.

Key activities

The event lineup features a labour market-inspired setting reminiscent of traditional UAE bazaars, with a diverse array of food, local crafts and products.

The celebrations also include sports tournaments, including cricket, badminton, volleyball, football and basketball. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy musical performances and take part in competitions aimed at expanding their knowledge.

Workers also have a chance to win valuable and exciting prizes that includes Emirates Airline tickets, Nissan Sunny cars, 150 mobile phones, 300 gold bars from Malabar and 600 special discount cards from the Taqdeer Award, which offer significant savings on purchases throughout the year.
