“Ma’an’s ‘Together We Are Good’ programme, reflects that in unison comes strength, our sincere gratitude and appreciation goes out to all the members of the community who continue to provide their support for the healthcare sector, and who remain fully committed to ensuring the delivery of high quality healthcare services for our nation.” Al Kaabi added. 


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 facilitate the distribution of people’s contributions to hospitals, providing 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, some 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 contributions will be allocated to healthcare entities converting their facilities into isolation units. DoH will conduct a thorough study of these entities to ensure they are meeting the necessary requirements under the current conditions, which are reviewed periodically and updated regularly based on updates from the Government.
