  1. The progress of AKDN in all rural and third world countries to uplift the quality of life for the poor has become so phenomenal so quickly in the last decade, and much more in all subjects e.g. Arts, culture, museums, parks, and so so much more, is indeed tremendous and overwhelming and they will continue to do so even faster in the years ahead. His Highness is travelling so much and seems like he is in several places at the same time. Subhanallah
