Employees of 21 organizations across the UAE have promised to dig 150 wells in 34 nations under the Well of Hope campaign, which would contribute clean water to over one million people.
The 21 organization had finished a 20-day humanitarian competition, the first of its kind in the region, which was kicked-off by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai. For the competition, he requested public and private sector employees across the nation to supply the largest amounts of water through a mobile virtual pumping device during the holy month of Ramadan to be donated to people in need.
The Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation in Dubai (AMAF) took the lead by beginning the Well of Hope endowment to offer clean water to more than 600,000 beneficiaries annually and enforce sustainable water supply projects in drought-affected communities across the globe.
Mohammad Al Gergawi, Minister of Cabinet Affairs and the Future, stated that the humanitarian campaign demonstrates the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed to create hope and bolster the values of giving and solidarity through offering clean water, the essence of life, to the disadvantaged communities. It also mirrors the UAE’s dedication to conserving human dignity, offering a helping hand and appreciating the quality of life across the world.
He cited that the prompt response of institutions and organization to the humanitarian competition “mirrors their obligation to corporate social responsibility to help people wherever they are, regardless of ethnicity, race or religion.”
He added that the drive’s great results attained in less than a month drives entities, including Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), to continue embracing innovation in shaping the future of humanitarian work that will profit the largest segment of people and communities.
