Emaar donates AED 100 million to COVID-19 fighting fund


Emaar Properties has pledged AED100 million to the Dubai government’s Social Solidarity Fund to tackle COVID-19.

The chairman of Emaar Properties, Mohamed Alabbar, invited other companies to join in assisting the initiative.

"It is our moral obligation to support our society and economy and government efforts to contain this pandemic,” he said.

"This crisis has impacted everyone and we are keen to aid efforts to accelerate government measures to restore normal life."

The Fund was launched last week to support the fight against coronavirus, with contributions from government entities, corporate donors, charities and private individuals.
