Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation Pays Debts of 25 Families Valued at AED6.167 Million
 

Initiative Aligns with UAE Year of Giving, Enhances Spirit of Social Solidarity

Dubai-UAE: 01 March 2017:  In line with the UAE Year of Giving, and in its sustained bid to support underprivileged segments of society including widows, Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF) paid out the debts of 25 families, whose bread winners had passed away in 2016, with a total allocation of AED6.167 million.  

The initiative is part of AMAF’s commitment to enhancing the spirit of social solidarity, supporting families in dire need, and encouraging values of tolerance and social responsibility across the nation. 

AMAF’s support included paying outstanding debts of the deceased husbands, settling bank debts of the deceased husbands or widows, and paying out other debts related. 

His Excellency Khaled Al Thani, Deputy Secretary General of AMAF, said: “In addition to the hardships that widows face in the absence of their deceased husbands and providers, they also deal with practical economic problems on the ground due to unpaid debts and other financial obligations. At AMAF, supporting such women and families in carrying on with their daily lives and dignity intact is a core part of our operations. We hope our efforts help in some way to alleviate their suffering.” 

For her part, Zainab Jumaa Al Tamimi, Deputy Director of Minors Affairs at AMAF, pointed out that the initiative helped beneficiary families achieve social and financial stability and self-dependence after paying out the debts they had accumulated.  

The debts were settled from AMAF’s ‘zakat’ mandate, orphan support mandate from the government, and endowment mandate that is linked with the donor’s conditions.
