'I believe that in such challenging times, it is imperative for the community to come together'

The latest philanthropist to extend donations to fight the coronavirus pandemic in the country is Ajay Sobhraj Au Finja, founder and chairman of Dubai-based Finja Jewellery.

In a letter addressed to the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) titled 'To Support and Give Back to the City That Cares', the Indian businessman donated a fully-equipped building in Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT) to be used for quarantining affected patients. The 77,000 sqft property can accommodate up to 400 people.

"I believe that in such challenging times, it is imperative for the community to come together and support the country we reside in to overcome this pandemic. I am extremely pleased to offer my assistance to the government during this critical period and support the city that has continued to contribute to my success and growth for the past 25 years," said Ajay.

The gesture reflects the support that the Dubai business community has extended to the authorities' measures to safeguard the health of the community. Both Emirati and expatriate business leaders have come together to show their support for the UAE government and aid efforts to ensure there is enough capacity to accommodate patients.
