Dubai Holding's collaborative initiatives have had a positive impact on the community this year
A Dubai-headquartered investment company's initiatives have impacted more than 125,000 people in the city this Ramadan.
Dubai Holding's programmes for the Holy Month included the Masaai Al Khair, the $2.72m (AED10m) initiative implemented with the UAE's Ministry of Community Development and Dubai Municipality to ensure social security for beneficiaries and low-income families.
In collaboration with Dubai Police, Dubai Industrial Park, a part of Dubai Holding, arranged for an iftar spanning a 6km table in Jebel Ali.
The iftar initiative involved 200 hours of preparation, 35 restaurants, and 500 government volunteers, leading to the provision of 18,500 iftar meals.
Dubai Holding also partnered with Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) to arrange a Ramadan tent in Muhaisnah 4, which hosted more than 30,000 people.
Commenting on the initiatives, Amit Kaushal, chief executive officer of Dubai Holding, said: "Our Ramadan drive has been Dubai Holding’s largest-ever social campaign, to date a hugely positive collective effort of companies across the group working to make a large impact on our wider community.
"Our collaboration with the Ministry of Community Development, ERC, Dubai Police, Unilever, and Better Life contributes to our ambition to support the government’s efforts to boost the happiness and welfare of the UAE’s citizens and residents," Kaushal added, according to WAM.
Dubai Holding is among the most significant businesses in the UAE, and its companies include Dubai Properties Group, Jumeirah Group, and Tecom Group.
The five-star Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Jumeirah Beach Residence, and Madinat Jumeirah are among some of the properties included within Dubai Holding's portfolio.
