Khalaf Al Habtoor sets aside $4.6 m to support rain relief efforts

DUBAI, 29 days ago

Al Habtoor Group has announced the launch of two new initiatives to support the UAE community in the wake of the recent deluge in the country.

Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, Founding Chairman of the group, announced the allocation of AED 17 million ($4.6 million) from the legacy of the late Mohammed Khalifa Al Suwaidi to repair homes of Emirati families, in addition to accommodating affected families in its hotels. This is in addition to a number of Emirati families being hosted at the Group's hotels in Al Habtoor City.

The group’s swift and effective response aims at supporting the efforts of the Supreme Committee for Crisis and Emergency Management in Dubai and in coordination with the Emirates Red Crescent Authority in Dubai.

These initiatives are part of Khalaf Al Habtoor's ongoing commitment to support the UAE community in times of crisis, highlighting the important role that private organisations play in helping those affected and lending a helping hand during difficult times, a statement said.

In addition, Al Habtoor Group has collaborated with the Dubai Community Development Authority (DCDA) to host weddings for residents of Al Lisaili as part of the 'Dubai Weddings' programme at the Habtoor Grand Hotel in Jumeirah.

The collaboration aims at avoiding the postponement of any scheduled ceremony due to the rain impact.

Khalaf Al Habtoor expressed his deepest solidarity with the affected families, emphasising that the goal of these efforts is to "ensure that every family affected by the emergency is safe and stable and can get their lives back on track as quickly as possible."

"Within our modest means, we stand side by side with government agencies and charitable organisations to face the challenges posed by nature and promote the spirit of cooperation and solidarity that is one of the core values of the UAE society," he added.
