His Highness Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah directed the establishment of two rest houses for the elderly and fishermen in the cities of Khorfakkan and Kalba, for gathering, meeting, monitoring the entry of boats, and the following up of their daily work.

The new rest houses are similar to the rest houses and councils established by the Department of Public Works in Sharjah in the city of Dibba.

His Highness approved 15 different requests from the fishermen of the Hamriyah region, which were forwarded to the Sharjah Executive Council (SEC), to take the necessary measures for each request, by the concerned authorities.

Sheikh Sultan also gifted the House of Manuscripts at Al Qasimia University in Sharjah 278 volumes, representing the seventh group of His Highness’ donations to the House, of which 274 include original manuscripts, and 4 ancient stone volumes.

All of these volumes contain various and multiple topics, including language, morphology, and Hadith.

Dr Awad Al Khalaf, Acting Director of Al Qasimia University (AQU), told the Direct Line programme of Sharjah Radio and Television that researchers, investigators, auditors and graduate students inside and outside the UAE will benefit from these volumes, as they are fertile material for theses.

Thus, the total of the volumes gifted to the house by His Highness amounted to approximately 1,700 volumes, according to Dr Al Khalaf.
