The Breastfeeding Friends Society, one of the health promotion associations at the Supreme Council for Family Affairs in Sharjah, honored 3 winners and nominated 10 posters drawn by Emirati children for the international poster contest organized by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), in celebration of World Food Day, which is held every year on October 16.

To encourage Emirati intellectuals, athletes and community activists to participate in the Sharjah Sports Family Award (SSFA), the award’s organisers have launched an Ambassadors Programme, under which top local media figures and social media influencers will promote the event’s message. SSFA encourages Emirati families to adopt healthy lifestyles through sports, and foster a sense of loyalty and community spirit. The award also seeks to strengthen national cohesion by recognising locals’ achievements in sports, encourage younger generations to take up sports and athletics professionally.
