UAE Ports sound ‘Horns of Hope’ in solidarity with frontline fight against coronavirus

At sunset on Wednesday, all ports across the United Arab Emirates sounded the “Horns of Hope” to show solidarity with frontline fight against coronavirus, COVID-19, pandemic.

In a world-first initiative launched by Abu Dhabi Ports in collaboration with the Federal Transport Authority Land & Maritime, tugboats across UAE ports sounded their horns at 6:30 pm in recognition and support of the maritime, healthcare and the critical sector personnel still working on the front lines to address the impact of COVID-19.

The “Horns of Hope” initiative calls on all tugboats and commercial vessels around the world to signal solidarity by sounding their horns in one-minute bursts every sunset for the remainder of the ongoing pandemic.
