Canon Middle East, a world leader in imaging solutions is supporting Dubai Cares “Build a Classroom: Change their Reality” activity at The Dubai Mall giving participants the chance to build a simulated classroom through their donations as a symbol of providing children in developing countries with access to quality primary education. 

Part of Dubai Cares ‘What If?’ Ramadan campaign this year, the Dubai Cares stand at The Dubai Mall's Star Atrium, running until 19th of July, allows visitors to make a donation of AED 50 and contribute to building the walls of a classroom using foam bricks.  A self-printing photo service has been provided by Canon to capture the community spirit and create a visual display of all those that have supported the campaign. 

In line with Canon Middle East’s commitment to supporting local communities across the region and to mark the Holy Month of Ramadan company employees also raised funds to ‘Adopt a School’ in Senegal with Dubai Cares and are working with ICDL on supporting Summer Camps in the UAE.
