Dubai Ruler Sheikh Mohammed has announced an award of $272,479 (AED1 million) to the winner of “The Hope Maker” competition that aims to improve the Arab world through humanitarian, developmental and community work.

He tweeted the award details on Tuesday which specifies that any individuals between the ages of 5 and 95 can apply or be nominated for the coveted award, but must be a resident of an Arab country.
