In a colourful ceremony, a book titled Glimpses of Tweets by Mohammed Bin Rashid on Humanity was launched as students from the Rashid Centre for the Disabled staged various performances.

The launch of the book on humanitarian tweets by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, was part of the celebration of Rashid Cultural Season 2015 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel on Wednesday evening.
