Abu Dhabi Ports launch Horns of Hope initiative to support frontline workers

Abu Dhabi Ports has launched a global movement to show support for frontline workers during the outbreak of COVID-19.

Following suit, the world’s maritime sector has joined the UAE capital's Horns of Hope initiative to show support for essential workers.

In harbours all around the world, ships sound their horns in 15 second bursts each evening in a show of support for maritime, healthcare and key workers.

The Arab Sea Ports Federation has officially committed to the cause and Horns of Hope has recieved praise from the International Maritime Organisation, an agency of the United Nations.



“It is deeply humbling and touching to witness the wide regional and global response to our call to sound the “Horns of Hope”,” said Captain Mohamed Juma Al Shamisi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Ports Group.

“This initiative spreads hope around the world and highlights the vital importance of our maritime and logistics lifelines at a time of crisis.

“We are proud of all essential critical infrastructure workers – administrative and core operations employees who are still working on ground, and around the clock, to drive business continuity, both in Abu Dhabi’s ports as well as all teams working in all ports across the world.

“We highly appreciate all the government efforts to face the Covid-19 consequences, and its strong commitment to support all business sectors.”
