Dubai Airports Signs MoU With Dubai Cares To Collaborate On Fundraising And Community Engagement Initiatives
(11 June 2017)


 In the spirit of Ramadan and the #Year of Giving, Dubai Airports and Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashed Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, today extended their long-standing collaboration by signing a three-year MoU designed to enhance cooperation, increase awareness among the travelling public and boost funding in support of providing education to underprivileged children and young people in developing countries.

The agreement, which was signed by Paul Griffiths, CEO of Dubai Airports, and Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer of Dubai Cares, provides Dubai Cares with the exclusive ability to collect funds in the public areas, excluding Dubai Duty Free collection boxes, of both Dubai International, DXB, and Dubai World Central, DWC.

Dubai Airports has also committed to increase the number of collection boxes, improve their visibility and locations to maximise contributions and increase awareness around the importance of providing underprivileged children and young people access to quality education, both physically within the airport and digitally across its leading social media platforms.

As a reflection of its commitment towards alleviating the suffering of people affected by crises, Dubai Airports has asked Dubai Cares to utilise the funds raised in the first year of the partnership to fund Dubai Cares’ Education in Emergencies programmes to help children that have been affected by conflict and natural disasters catch up with their education in countries like Lebanon, Iraq and Nepal.

Commenting on the partnership, Paul Griffiths said, "We are thrilled about the agreement and excited about the opportunity to amplify our contributions to this worthy cause. With over 90 million customers visiting our airports this year, we are confident that we can make an even bigger impact. Last year we collected over AED640,000 in support of Dubai Cares. Our goal in year one of this agreement is to work with Dubai Cares to double that contribution and support thousands of children and young people who currently don’t have access to quality education."

Tariq Al Gurg said, "It is a true privilege for us at Dubai Cares to partner with Dubai Airports, the world's busiest airport in terms of international passengers and one of the UAE’s most prominent success stories. Being Dubai Airports’ exclusive charity partner offers us a fantastic opportunity to promote our cause and raise awareness about our work among a truly diverse audience, from businesspeople to families as well as international travellers."

"It will also help us raise vital funds that enable us to provide quality education to underprivileged children and young adults in developing countries. As part of this agreement, the funds raised on the first year will be directed to support efforts to provide education to children in emergencies, like Syrian refugee children in Lebanon and children affected by the Nepal earthquake in 2015," he concluded.
