Dubai: Dh1 million donation to fund treatment costs of needy
Programme offers financial aid for medical care to patients in the UAE.
Al Jalila Foundation, a Dubai-based global philanthropic organisation, has received a Dh1 million donation to help patients in need.
The donation from Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) will support the foundation's A’awen programme, which provides financial aid for medical care to patients in the UAE.
Since its inception in 2013, Al Jalila Foundation has supported 1,094 patients from 54 nationalities, including 602 children. It has provided assistance worth Dh74 million to patients suffering from a number of chronic illnesses and life-threatening conditions.
The treatment costs for patients have ranged from to Dh20,000 to Dh250,000 per individual.
The bank's name has been engraved on Bassmat Rashid Bin Saeed, the first robotic donor recognition wall of its kind.
Named after the late Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Al Maktoum, who is renowned for his humanitarian achievements, Bassmat Rashid Bin Saeed is a unique humanitarian campaign that uses cutting-edge technology to recognise the donor community’s contributions to advancing local medical research to save patients’ lives.
