The Dubai Police announced its contribution of Dh1 million to the Mothers' Endowment campaign, launched by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to establish a Dh1 billion endowment fund to support the education of millions around the world.

Launched under the umbrella of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and coinciding with the holy month of Ramadan, the campaign honors mothers by allowing contributors to make donations in their names. It also aims to support underprivileged individuals and communities in a sustainable way through education.


"It is an honor to be part of this campaign and to support its objectives of sustainably supporting underprivileged individuals around the world, by providing the education and skills necessary for a better future," Lieutenant-General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said.
