Her Excellency Salama Al Ameemi, Director General of Ma’an, said: “I continue to be humbled by the extraordinary public response to our ‘Together We Are Good’ programme. We will ensure that the money raised so far will be used in the most effective way possible and I am extremely grateful to all of our contributors from across the community. 


“While our health care system is robust and continues to rise to the various challenges that present themselves, the unprecedented public support is testament to the unique community spirit that is manifesting itself in Abu Dhabi.


“As always our focus will continue to be on our how we can constantly meet the various social challenges we face and benefit Abu Dhabi and its citizens and residents.” 


In cooperation with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, Ma'an will allocate financial funds which will contribute to supply hospitals with essential resources needed for isolation and quarantine facilities in hotels. In coordination with the specialized agencies and other hotels working closely together to establish a medical team, a part of these financial contributions will be devoted to the purchase of an additional set of medical supplies and equipment including infection prevention, examination supplies, provision of meals, and transportation for the medical staff. Additionally, part of the funds will be used to care for people in home quarantine.


Finally, part of the donations will be allocated to healthcare entities converting their facilities into isolation units.
