Dubai Cares Receives AED 10 Million Commitment From UAE Exchange

Dubai Cares has announced a $2.7 million commitment in support of its mission from the United Arab Emirates Exchange.

The gift, made as part of the UAE Year of Giving 2017 campaign, will support Dubai Cares' efforts to positively impact the lives of underserved children and young people in developing countries through education. To that end, the UAE Exchange also will promote Dubai Cares' volunteering and community engagement initiatives among its employees and customers.

"We are very grateful to UAE Exchange, whose generosity will certainly make a valuable contribution to our goal of impacting the lives of as many children and young people as possible by providing them with the opportunity to go to school and learn," said Dubai Cares CEO Tariq Al Gurg. "This commitment truly reflects the values of the UAE's 'Year of Giving 2017' as declared by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan....What we aspire to achieve over the next ten years and beyond only becomes possible through the generosity and support of partners like UAE Exchange and other like-minded organizations [that] genuinely believe in, and support, our noble cause and mission."
