Supporting Dubai Autism - A Long Walk Back

A decade ago, I went on a journey quest and crossed the seven Emirates to raise awareness for autism. I had no idea that I would even go as far the Empty Quarter in 2009 from my home in Dubai, and then on another walk to Makkah in 2012, all the way from Abu Dhabi City. I knew that after 10 years I had to go back to where it all started, and so I began planning and mapping out a new route to raise awareness for a cause close to my heart.

"The aim of this mission was to bridge the gap between special needs and the rest of the community."

The Journey

Hampered by scorching heat, breakdown of support vehicles, scarce food, and dusty unpaved roads, over 14 days, he covered roughly 810km.
