We support the ‘Giving Hands’ initiative as a tremendous response to announcement of 2017 as the Year of Giving, where H.H. Shaikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, has stated that ‘the call is for everyone.’ We look forward to the success of our initiatives, supporting national efforts to promote the values of philanthropy as one of the fundamental principles of our vision to build a thriving economy for the welfare of the residents of Ajman.”

“The visit played a key role in achieving our efforts to make the ‘Giving Hands’ initiative a success. It has enabled the staff of DED Ajman to participate in voluntary, charitable and humanitarian work either through field visits to hospitals or by giving a helping hand to current or future charity initiatives that benefit the community of Ajman. We will continue to organize voluntary events and charitable activities that supports the ‘Year of Giving 2017’ through three quality initiatives, including ‘Giving Hands,’ ‘Good Investors,’ and ‘Good Corner’ campaigns,” concluded Al Matrooshi.
