The auction also included plate numbers specifically curated for motorcycles and classic cars.

"The robust turnout for the 3rd edition of The Most Noble Numbers online charity auction underscores the UAE community's commitment to fostering values of social cohesion and solidarity by extending aid to the most vulnerable groups," said Staff Major General Pilot Faris Khalaf Al Mazrouei, Abu Dhabi Police Commander-in-Chief.

The Mothers’ Endowment campaign is dedicated to honouring mothers and providing educational opportunities to millions in underserved communities.

It aims to establish an AED 1 billion endowment fund to sustainably support the education of individuals around the world, providing them with the necessary tools and skills to lead independent lives.
