In July 2007 by presidential order, the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation was created. The Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to provide education, health, and community engagement services to needy populations within and without the UAE. It is governed by a Board of Trustees. Its purpose is to help all of humanity by providing effective aid programs that meet the rights of vulnerable people, regardless of ethnicity, language, race, or belief. The Foundation aims to promote a spirit of compassion and an ethic of volunteering in the UAE community throughout its initiatives. It is dedicated to building a presence between or collaborating with top foundations in creative philanthropic activities around the world. By aiding over 90 nations around the world, the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation or Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan Foundation significantly raised its humanitarian profile.
Head of state His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Al Nahyan is continuing to follow the memories of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan through to the foundation’s work, according to Ahmed Juma Al Zaabi, Cabinet secretary of the Supreme Federal Commission at the Minister of state’s Presidential Affairs and Vice Chairman of the Foundation, in a declaration to the Emirates Media Organization, WAM.
He emphasized that its wise governance is committed to introducing aid and development measures that seek to assist people who need help through official support from the government, charitable organizations, and humanitarian groups, and also that the foundation’s achievements are attributable to H.H. Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Deputy Leader, Minister of Presidency Affairs, and Head of state of the Foundation’s supervision.
The Foundation’s Director-General, Mohammed Haji Al Kouri, stated that the organization has kept giving humanitarian assistance for 11 years owing to the wise government’s support, stressing that the foundation had substantial charity, humanitarian, and economic victories in 2018.
The charity launched a new Ramadan program, which distributed 10,000 Ramadan baskets including nine food types to over 50,000 residents on the island of Socotra.
In cooperation with the Government of School in Socotra, the organization sponsored an initiative that aided 17,000 children from 86 schools. In preparations for the 2018-2019 academics year, it also started an initiative that provided local schools with approximately 5,000 chairs, 5,000 tables, and 1,000 class boards.
A 120-megawatt power plant in Aden was also repaired by the organization at an amount of 100 million American dollars, benefiting 2.5 million citizens. The Khalifa Foundation is getting a head start on this task that can provide supportive services to people with special needs with the goal of facilitating their participation in society as well as enabling them to make contributions to various activities in their societies, in line with the Foundation’s quest to support society’s most susceptible segments. The Mansour bin Zayed al Nahyan Foundation anticipates the establishment of complete rehabilitation and supporting facility, which would provide effective responses, therapies, as well as other assistance to people with special needs from birth to maturity, in response to recognized weaknesses in current service delivery. Despite the paucity of data, the Organization emphasizes the need for all advances to be evidence-based.
