Mohammed Khalifa Al Suwaidi fund has provided AED1,000,000 for the “Your Donation is a Life” initiative launched by “Emirates Today” newspaper, in cooperation with the Mohammed Bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences, and the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai given by the businessman Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor. The contribution helps in treating and transplanting kidneys to patients included in the initiative, providing the necessary medication for them, as the operation will start at the Mediclinic Hospital in Dubai.
Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor said, “Your Donation is a Life initiative is an inspiring model for the cooperation of institutions and society in supporting the most vulnerable groups to overcome their circumstances and their challenges.”
He added that introducing specific initiatives to improve the lives of certain segments of society during the month of Ramadan greatly contributes to drawing the attention of community members to these issues in order to participate in supporting these community initiatives. Al Habtoor indicated that the best and most sustainable model for community development depends on the existence of a responsible society, in which each member feels his responsibility for the happiness of others, and contributes to the role he can play regardless of his size to fulfill this responsibility.
The Executive Director of the Charitable Work Sector at the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai, Ahmed Darwish Al Muhairi, valued the contribution made by “Mohammed Khalifa Al Suwaidi Fund” given by businessperson Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, as this contribution is a hope to patients with kidney failure who are included in the humanitarian initiative. This donation will be directed to improving the lives of patients, helping their families, and putting smiles on their faces to enable them to lead a healthy life.
Al Muhairi said that this generous contribution is an important addition to the initiative, as it a reflection of the noble values, benevolence and altruism that the Emirati society enjoys, stressing that Al Habtoor is keen to extend a helping hand for humanity, through his support for various humanitarian and charitable projects inside and outside the UAE.
He pointed out that the positive response reflected the keenness of the public and private sectors to leave a different imprint, and to give hope to the lives of the patients included in the initiative.
The editor-in-chief of the Emirates today, Sami Al-Riyami, praised the donation of the businessman, which always cooperates in supporting such community initiatives that are in the public interest, adding that “the amount of donations reached AED19,710,000 enough to treat and transplant the kidneys to 33 patients. Al-Riyami called on institutions and individuals in the country to support this community initiative.
The Director of Communication and External Relations at the Mohammed bin Rashid University of Medicine and Health Sciences, the national coordinator in the National Committee for Organ Transplantation, Nujoud Abdulaziz Al-Khaloufi, appreciated businessman Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, the owner of a long record in the field of charitable and humanitarian work, for the donation made by «Mohammed Khalifa Al-Suwaidi Fund».
