The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) has recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Al Jalila Foundation, with the aim to strengthen the partnership between the two sides and enhance cooperation between them in the fields of humanitarian, charitable and community work for the benefit of the UAE society.
The MoU was signed by Dr Abdulrahman Al-Awar, Director General of FAHR and Dr. Raja Issa Al-Gurg, Chairperson of Al-Jalila Foundation.
The MoU seeks to enhance cooperation between the Foundation and FAHR, and to provide media support for the initiatives of Al-Jalila Foundation by promoting and publicizing them at the level of the Federal Government.
Commenting on the signing of the MoU, HE Dr. Abdulrahman Al Awar, Director General of FAHR said that cooperation with a distinguished national institution specialized in charity and humanitarian work would contribute to enhancing the Authority’s great efforts to support humanitarian assistance initiatives inside and outside the country, in line with its social responsibility towards all segments of society.
He said: “The MoU will significantly contribute to shaping the strategic partnership between the two sides, unifying their efforts and intensifying joint charitable campaigns. It should be recalled that FAHR has recently launched, in cooperation with Al Jalila Foundation, the first of their charity campaigns under (Sanadhom Amanah) Initiative to support the treatment of a 6-year-old Arab girl called Noor, who is suffering congenital hearing loss, and needs cochlear implant.”
The Director General of the Authority said that cooperation with Al Jalila Foundation comes within the framework of the Authority's interaction with the announcement of His Highness President Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, designating 2018 as Year of Zayed. He revealed that FAHR has achieved, since the beginning of 2018, about 10 community initiatives that received great interaction and responsiveness by Federal Government employees and all segments of society.
Dr. Raja Al Gurg, Member and Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of Al Jalila Foundation said: "We are delighted to be partnering with the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources under Sanadhom Amanah Community Initiative, to provide treatment for patients who cannot afford to pay the cost of treatment health care through our assistance program borne out by the "Aoun" program sponsored by Al-Ghalila Foundation.
She added: "As a local organization, we believe in the vital role that state institutions can play in helping us achieve our mission of improving the quality of life of patients and their families. With the support of the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources and its staff, we will be able to give hope to many patients and bring happiness to their hearts.”
