Dubai, UAE, 7 December 2019:  Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, hosted on Saturday the last edition of Volunteer Emirates 2019, in support of Umm Al Qura School in Um Al Quwain. This edition, which was generously sponsored by DP World, witnessed an impressive participation of 200 volunteers who helped in the renovation of the school to enrich the learning environment for 1,200 students.
