More than 4,300 families have received financial support from a charity association in Ras Al Khaimah, thanks to the Dh12.8-million donation of Dubai Islamic Bank.
Each family received about Dh1,500 to Dh5,000 in Zakat, depending on the number of members, according to Mohammed Jakkah Al Mansouri, secretary-general of Ras Al Khaimah Charity Association.

All Covid-19 precautionary measures were strictly observed in the distribution of aid, he added.
