The Federal Authority Human for Government Human Resources (FAHR), recently launched, in cooperation with Dar al-Bir Society, "Shetahom Rahma" Humanitarian Initiative, which aims to provide winter basic needs to Syrian refugees living in dire humanitarian situations in camps in many Arab countries bordering their home country. These refugees are facing a harsh winter, and lack essential elements of a decent life.
In this context, Hanan Mohammed bin Naseef, Deputy Director of Government Communications, explained that the campaign came as part of the joint efforts of the Authority and Dar Al-Bir Society to alleviate the suffering of Syrian refugees who were forced to escape their country to to neighbouring Arab countries, to live in extremely harsh and difficult conditions, especially in the cold winter.
She said: “The initiative comes as the Authority's response to the declaration of 2019 as the Year of Tolerance by His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the UAE. To mark this declaration, the Authority launched its community and humanitarian response plan, including many events and activities to be implemented during the year.
“The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources has publicized the campaign at the Federal Government level to allow the opportunity for the largest number of employees of the ministries and federal entities to participate in community work and charitable giving through their various social networking accounts or via BAYANATI System.”
She called on community groups to contribute to support the campaign and donate AED 10 by sending the word ‘Rahma’ in an SMS to number 2289 via Etisalat and du, donate AED 20 by sending the same word to the number 6025 via Etisalat and du, donate AED 50 through number 2252 and AED 100 through 6027..
Hanan bin Naseef concluded that the Authority seeks through its community initiatives to maximize participation within and outside the country, and to consolidate the values of volunteerism and philanthropy, promote the spirit of social responsibility, and instil the values of loyalty and career happiness by volunteering.
