On Tuesday night, in a ceremony at Emirates Palace, Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, was recognised with the Man of Humanity award by a Vatican foundation. On behalf of Sheikh Mohamed, Sheikh Shakhbout bin Nahyan, Minister of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Relations accepted the award. Vatican’s Pontifical Foundation Gravissimum Educationis gave this award. This foundation supports learning projects and global education.
