Mamsha Al Khair is an inspirational public landmark made up a granite monolith and limestone installations set along the Abu Dhabi Corniche promenade from the East Plaza all the way to the Emirates Palace junction.

Carrying inscriptions from the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Founding Father of the UAE, HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the UAE President, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, and HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, the quotations engraved in the granite monolith installation reflect the UAE leadership’s ongoing commitment to fostering a culture of giving among Emiratis, residents and visitors to the emirate.

Mamsha Al Khair showcases inspirational quotes every 30 metres along the iconic promenade from the East Plaza to the intersection at Emirates Palace. The granite installations and walkway invites visitors to engage with its symbolism, taking pictures and videos while chronicling the UAE’s long-standing reputation for promoting social awareness by imparting the value of giving back to society.

The 76 quotes inscribed on the limestone panels along the Corniche walkway are from globally renowned inspirational figures, and aim to invoke a spirit of volunteerism, increase awareness for the importance of social responsibility, while encouraging future generations to aspire to humanitarian values and foster a legacy of generosity.
