The Ambassador of the United Arab Emirates in Pretoria, Mr Hamad Hareb Alhabsi, launched an “International Corner” at Mabopane north of the City of Tshwane as part of their Outreach Programme in partnership with Sun International’s Morula Community Library during World Book Day on 23rd April.
In celebrating the global event which takes place annually, the Morula Community Library’s Administrator Strike Kunene engaged the office of the Ambassador to contribute books in launching the newly established initiative.   According to Kunene the purpose of this initiative was to create a space within the library whereby children, learners and students from schools and universities can learn about other countries historical backgrounds and studying opportunities.
Kunene further said that the Morula Sun Casino& Hotel’s human resource division endorsed the initiative.
“More importantly, as part of informing, educating and being an institution of empowerment I felt it was necessary to have a dedicated space where our library users can connect with the world through knowledge of books,” he added. A total of 211 new books were donated by the embassy of UAE. Among the books which were contributed include; Education, Tourism, Arts& Culture, Architecture charts, Sports, History and Hospitality.
Thuli Nduli, representing Morula’s Human Resource department, in her acceptance speech of the donated books, said the initiative is a first of its kind and they hope it will benefit the students and community members who utilize the library services.
“We are very excited about this initiative and we hope that these donated books can serve as a source of knowledge and empowerment. More importantly, we wish the youth and surrounding communities will take advantage of our library’s variety of educational books and references,” she said. -
