Al-Abir has been kind-hearted and helpful from a young age. He is a dedicated social worker, and he supports his community in many ways. During the Covid-19 pandemic, he was a frontline fighter. He handed out masks and sanitizer, as well as raised awareness about Covid-19 amongst the homeless and poor families. Al-Abir worked with the Red Crescent Unit of his school to create a vaccination centre. Alongside this, he created an awareness-raising group who worked to educate his peers on the importance of the vaccine. They also registered poor and less-educated people to ensure they received the vaccine. By Al-Abir’s efforts, thousands of people were vaccinated. Al-Abir also created a plasma blood bank during the pandemic which helped over 1.000 people.
