UAE, June 21, 2017 - Al Ansari Exchange, the UAE-based foreign exchange and worldwide money transfer company, has committed AED 10 million to Dubai Cares in line with the recently announced UAE’s ‘Year of Giving 2017’.
Rashed Ali Al Ansari, General Manager, Al Ansari Exchange, said: “It is a momentous occasion to witness the growth of Dubai Cares as one of the world’s leading philanthropic organizations, working towards providing equal opportunities for girls and boys to access quality education. Since Dubai Cares’ inception, Al Ansari Exchange has been one of its key partners supporting the organization in its effort to reach out to as many children and young people as possible and help impact their lives as well as that of their families and communities.”
“We remain committed to supporting Dubai Cares in its coming chapter as per the announcement of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai on the occasion of Dubai Cares’ tenth anniversary. This huge humanitarian initiative, which began more than a decade ago, has achieved remarkable milestones, driven by our confidence and keenness to continue to provide financial assistance to charitable and philanthropic organizations,” concluded Al Ansari.
Al Ansari Exchange has been a key supporter of Dubai Cares since its launch, previously contributing AED 10 million towards providing quality education to tens of thousands of children in India, Pakistan and the Philippines.
