The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) has recently launched a charitable campaign at the Federal Government level, in cooperation with Dar al-Ber Society, to help treat a number of low-income people with chronic diseases such as hepatitis and kidney failure.
In this regard, Mahmoud Al Marzouqi, Director of Government Communication Department, said that the campaign came within the framework of "Sanadhom Amanah" initiative launched by FARH last year. The idea is to collect donations in favour of patients with disabilities at Dubai Health Authority (DHA) hospitals, by providing them with medicines, medical devices and auxiliary aids.
He said: “The campaign comes as part of the initiatives successively launched by the Authority to mark the ‘Year of Giving’, and building on the success achieved by "Sanadhom Amanah" initiative in 2016, where the Authority supported the efforts of DHA by securing of treatment costs for some needy patients admitted to hospitals and health centers”.
Al-Marzouqi said that the Authority publicized the campaign at the the Federal Government level to allow the opportunity for the largest number of employees at the ministries and federal entities to participate in this charitable work, through various accounts on the social networking sites, as well as through the Human Resources Management Information System (BAYANATI) in the Federal Government.
He called on all community groups to contribute to the campaign to help treat people with chronic diseases by sending the word "treatment" in an SMS to number 2289 via Etisalat and du. He noted that the Authority launched 26 community and voluntary initiatives during the first half of 2017, in cooperation with its partner accredited institutions and charities, and in line with the declaration of 2017 as the ‘Year of Giving’ by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the State.
Al-Marzouqi added that the initiatives resulted in collecting more than 463 thousand dirhams through the bank accounts of charitable organizations, and that the proceeds went to financing the charitable activities of those organizations.
The Director of the Government Communication Department at the Authority noted that the Authority seeks, through its community initiatives, to maximize interest within and outside the country, and to consolidate the values of volunteering and philanthropy, promote the spirit of social responsibility, and instil the values of corporate loyalty and happiness.
