Sharjah Police honoured an elderly Pakistani man for his selfless act of erecting barriers over a road sinkhole caused by heavy rains to warn motorists of the potential danger.
The Sharjah Police praised Abdelaziz Abdelhameed, a Pakistani worker in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), for selflessly erecting barricades on the dangerous road, a portion of which had recently collapsed.

The chief also emphasized Sharjah Police’s special focus on recognizing people who go above and beyond for humanity.
Brigadier General Mubarak went on to say that the Pakistani worker erected barriers in a deserted area of Al Sajaa where a massive sinkhole had formed due to rainwater accumulation.
The police officer emphasised the Sharjah Police General Command’s eagerness to recognise members of the community who go above and beyond to perform acts of humanity and social responsibility.
“He put barriers in front of a deserted area in Al Sajaa which became a big hole because of rainwater to warn motorists and other road users. This is a noble and humanitarian act,” said Brig Mubarak.
