Serving the UAE and our leaders is a lifetime mission. This is how UAE President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan was received by Emirati photojournalist Noora Al Neyadi. She became well known as the “Free Arab” after setting out on an unusual expedition, assembling a team to accompany her, and spending a month living in a tent among tribes in Chad.

Sheikh Mohamed urged her to keep taking pictures of and documenting other customs and civilizations in order to advance understanding and cooperation through photography when he met her in Qasr Al Bahar.

Who is Noora Al Neyadi, though? And why did the President compliment her so highly?

Noora is an anthropologist, documentary photographer, and intrepid traveler from the Emirati nation. She has a sizable Instagram following of over 30,000. Here, she kindly offers eye-catching images and narratives of her extraordinary endeavors that span the landscapes of the UAE and far beyond.

After starting a singular adventure that involved immersing herself in the center of tribal villages in Chad, Noora attracted a lot of attention. She went on a heroic journey to improve the lives of millions who were in desperate need of clean water, spending a whole month living in a tent and being entirely cut off from the internet.

Her documentation expertly caught complex tribal life and sad situations.

Noora expounded on her work in the country of Africa in a conversation with CNN. She recalled: “At the COP27 climate summit, a Chadian woman spoke about the drought affecting almost 90% of Lake Chad. It was crucial for me to set out on an exploratory trip to get to know the locals and learn how this situation is affecting them.

I hope to go back there again, perhaps in the future, because it will always have a particular place in my heart.

The “Free Arab” who set off on an adventure filled with thrills, danger, and events was the talk of Chad after the trip, as described through her Instagram account.

At the end of the tour, Noora did succeed in achieving one of her major objectives: she raised more than Dh1.2 million to erect seven water wells throughout various districts of Chad.

“We are the ones who create the paths of exploration, and we are the ones who give cities and people a space for hope and a deeper meaning to their life stories,” the author said on her account. We are sowing the goodness of Zayed.

She expressed her sincere gratitude for the Emirates Red Crescent’s continuous support and their aid in carrying out this endeavor.

Noora had traveled extensively throughout the nation due to her love of camping, thus this was not her only excursion.

She traveled for a week from the capital, Abu Dhabi, to Liwa on one of her excursions.

Noora discussed her experiences and the difficulties she had encountered as she had traveled to many civilizations during her meeting with the President. She vowed to stay committed to recording the history and architecture that distinguish each community despite all the odds.
