November 16, 2014

Emirates Islamic, one of the leading Islamic financial institutions in the UAE, has announced a philanthropic community initiative to collect donations on behalf of Dubai Health Authority (DHA) for their MOSA'ADAH charity programme.

MOSA'ADAH, a charity program created by DHA, aims to help patients and families who cannot afford medical treatment, as well as contribute to projects in support of hospital equipment and medical facilities.

As part of this initiative, Emirates Islamic customers can donate funds to MOSA'ADAH under a specially created charity account: Emirates Islamic 0384 540010 001 under 'MOSA'ADAH'. Donations can be made through any Emirates Islamic branch, ATM or CDM across the UAE or via online banking and by SMS.

Jamal Bin Ghalaita, Chief Executive Officer of Emirates Islamic said: "The UAE is home to people across different nationalities and income groups. As a home-grown brand with a deep commitment to the values and ethics of Shari'a, Emirates Islamic is keen to offer fellow citizens a safe and reliable way to connect to others in need. Our decision to partner with MOSA'ADAH complements the bank's efforts to promote community related participation."

"We invite our customers to contribute to the MOSA'ADAH charity programme using one of our secure, direct and easy donation channels," added Bin Ghalaita.

His Excellency Engineer Essa Al Haj Al Maidoor, Director-General of the DHA, emphasised the importance of this announcement, which reflects a real partnership model between the public and private sector as they move towards supporting charity initiatives and assisting patients in need. He also highlighted DHA's commitment towards ensuring that all members of the community have access to adequate healthcare services, in addition to improving the health status of the population through DHA's hospitals and health centres, available across the emirate.

Al Maidoor added that DHA's partnership with Emirates Islamic will provide several patients in need of treatment services, an opportunity to access state of the art medical facilities. He also pointed out to the efforts made by MOSA'ADAH charity programme over the past years, in providing healthcare services to underprivileged patients.

Emirates Islamic has launched several community and charitable programmes as part of its ongoing commitment to support the UAE community, and in particular to the development of the UAE healthcare industry. Previously the Bank made significant contributions to DHA to support Dubai Hospital and Rashid Hospital in purchasing new medical equipment.
