As part of the declaration of 2017 as the “Year of Giving” by UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ministry of Finance (MoF), in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent, organised a donation campaign to aid and support the people of Aleppo at its premises in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
The donation campaign was held in the presence of HE Musabah Al Suwaidi, Assistant Undersecretary of Support Services Sector at MoF. HE Al Suwaidi delivered the donations to the concerned person at the Emirates Red Crescent, which will deliver them to the people in need in the city of Aleppo.
HE Musabah Al Suwaidi stressed MoF’s commitment to the “Year of Giving” initiatives and to develop activities which will empower the spirit of social responsibility, volunteering and serving the nation amongst MoF’s employees.
MoF organised a number of charitable campaigns in 2016 in which the Ministry’s senior management and its employees participated in cooperation with various humanitarian institutions. MoF campaigns included the donation campaign for the Emirates Red Crescent to assist families in need during Ramadan and the “Iftar Saem” programme which delivered Iftar meals to workers in Madinat Zayed in Abu Dhabi.
