UAE Lights Up In Blue
On 2 April, various landmarks across the UAE turned blue to mark World Autism Day.
The initiative is in line with the 15th Autism Awareness Campaign celebrated every year.
Landmarks around the UAE like the Burj Khalifa, Burj Al Arab, Dubai Frame, Yas Mall, Tolerance Bridge, Dubai Water Canal Waterfall and Global Village all turned blue.
The initiative was set to raise awareness among people on the difficulties faced by individuals with autism and to encourage individuals to include them socially.
The month-long 15th Autism Awareness Campaign will feature webinar in schools and events and activities that will help raise awareness on autism among individuals.
