Dubai Cares unveils Gaza Ramadan campaign


Dubai Cares has launched its "Gaza In Our Hearts" Ramadan fundraising campaign to support the people of Gaza.

Building upon the ongoing success of the UAE’s “Tarahum for Gaza” initiative, all donations will go towards hot meals, food baskets, as well as waterproof and fire-resistant tents. 

The charity has entered into a strategic partnership with Anera - American Near East Refugee Aid - who will work closely with UN, diplomatic and non-governmental organisation partners to open aid corridors to ensure delivery.

Speaking about the significance of the campaign, Dr. Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer and Vice-Chairman of Dubai Cares, said, "The UAE’s response to the war in Gaza was immediate, with the entire country, including the UAE government, charitable and philanthropic organisations, businesses, and the wider community, joining efforts to provide life-saving aid.

"With the conflict entering its sixth month, access to food and shelter has become critically low, leaving many Gazans facing severe food insecurity reaching catastrophic levels. Through the Gaza In Our Hearts campaign, we are providing members of the community the opportunity to unite and respond to this urgent need with a sense of responsibility and empowerment.

"We hope that through this campaign and our strategic partnership with Anera, we will not only alleviate hunger and suffering, but also nurture hope, resilience, and dignity.”
