An invitation from the Sheikh

Jesfer Pulikkathody, mouthpainter from India, was able to accomplish one of his long cherished dreams.  He travelled to Dubai in response to an invitation from Dubai’s Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Muhammad bin Raschid Al Maktum, where he had the opportunity to meet him and present to him the portrait of Dubai ruler,  His Highness Sheikh Muhammad bin Raschid Al Maktum and the Crown Prince His Highness Sheikh Hamdan. The meeting was at the Emirates Towers in Dubai.

His Highness had once addressed the physically challenged people as “people with determination”. For Jesfer Pulikkathody this statement were words of encouragement and a futher motivation to help the community of disabled persons worldwide. At this occasion, His Highness Sheikh Hamdan has conveyed his very best wishes to all mouth- and footpainters as well as success for the upcoming ‘International Mouth and Foot Painters Day’ celebration that is going to be held on September 5, 2018.
