The project was signed on Tuesday at the foundation head quarters by Ibrahim Bumelha, Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Mohammed bin Rashid foundation, and Mujahid Al Fayad, CEO of Al Hayat organisation.

Bumelha mentioned that each school is facilitated with two floors and 12 classrooms, with a capacity of around 500 students, costing about Dh2,166,000. “Two schools will be built in the city of Baghdad, one in Alramadi and the other in Mowsel, and the total cost of these four schools is around Dh8.6 million,” he said.

He added that two hospitals will be built in two different cities, Albasrah and Mowsel at a cost of Dh2,166,000 each. “These schools and hospitals are named after His Highness Shaikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, for his keenness to develop and help our brothers in Iraq,” said Bumelha.

He mentioned that the foundation has established other projects with Al Hayat organisation, including three other hospitals and one school in Iraq, and said that they are completed with very high standards.
