Emirati businessman Abdul Rahim Al Zarooni, Chairman of the Board of Al Zarooni Group, has donated AED10 million to the health sector.

He said the funds were to ensure all healthcare centres and clinics have adequate medical supplies during the current sensitive period.

Al Zarooni stressed the importance of UAE citizens contributing to the fight against the virus, stressing that it is their national duty to come together to ensure the country remains a model for security, safety and happiness.

The UAE business community continues to extend support to the country’s efforts to combat the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) through various contributions and initiatives. 

The country has scaled up its preventive efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, including putting in place stringent controls at all air and sea ports by deploying medical teams. 

This is in line with the recommendations of the Ministry of Health and Prevention and the guidelines of the World Health Organisation.
