International Diana Award
In the past four years Saima has volunteered with more than 57 charities, philanthropic organisations and non-profit bodies across the UAE. It is estimated that she has put in around 3,000 hours with groups such as Dubai Autism Centre, Feline Friends, Dubai Cares, the Safe and Sound breast cancer charity and refugee-helping Penny Appeal. Saima has taken a hands on approach by doing everything from planting trees to painting schools, picking up litter, to monitoring walkathons, providing drinks for labourers, to visiting sick children and fundraising. Her enthusiasm and dedication has already changed lives and she is showing no signs of slowing down any time soon.
