Abu Dhabi, Monday 6 April 2020:  The Authority of Social Contribution – Ma'an's ‘Together We Are Good' programme will allocate some of the contributions received so far towards extra relief for Abu Dhabi's health care sector.


The past week has seen businesses and individuals step up their support financially alongside many in-kind contributions for the benefit of Abu Dhabi and aid the current health and economic challenges.


The Department of Health has identified the key priority areas that will be of most benefit outside of the usual operations of the UAE's healthcare system and will work closely with the Authority of Social Contribution - Ma'an to determine how to apportion the funds to best provide Abu Dhabi's world-class health care professionals and facilities with any required support.


H.E Dr. Jamal Al Kaabi, Acting Undersecretary of the Department of Health, said: “As the world faces the COVID-19 pandemic virus, the UAE has joined hands to ensure the safety and well-being of society. All working as one team, the healthcare sector is ready and fully capable to protect of all members of the community and fight against the spread of the virus.”


“Ma'an's ‘Together We Are Good' programme, reflects that in unison comes strength, our sincere gratitude and appreciation goes out to all the members of the community who continue to provide their support for the healthcare sector, and who remain fully committed to ensuring the delivery of high quality healthcare services for our nation.” Al Kaabi added. 


Her Excellency Salama Al Ameemi, Director General of Ma'an, said: “I continue to be humbled by the extraordinary public response to our ‘Together We Are Good' programme. We will ensure that the money raised so far will be used in the most effective way possible and I am extremely grateful to all of our contributors from across the community. 


“While our health care system is robust and continues to rise to the various challenges that present themselves, the unprecedented public support is testament to the unique community spirit that is manifesting itself in Abu Dhabi.


“As always our focus will continue to be on our how we can constantly meet the various social challenges we face and benefit Abu Dhabi and its citizens and residents.” 


In cooperation with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, Ma'an will allocate financial funds which will contribute to supply hospitals with essential resources needed for isolation and quarantine facilities in hotels. In coordination with the specialized agencies and other hotels working closely together to establish a medical team, a part of these financial contributions will be devoted to the purchase of an additional set of medical supplies and equipment including infection prevention, examination supplies, provision of meals, and transportation for the medical staff. Additionally, part of the funds will be used to care for people in home quarantine.


Finally, part of the donations will be allocated to healthcare entities converting their facilities into isolation units. DoH will conduct a thorough study of these entities to ensure they are meeting the necessary requirements under the current conditions, which are reviewed periodically and updated regularly based on updates from the Government.


Participants wishing to contribute financially can send SMS messages to 6670 (AED 1000), 6678 (500 AED), 6683 (100 AED) and 6658 (50 AED). They can also call 8005-MAAN for volunteering and in-kind and financial contributions above AED 1,000 or send messages on WhatsApp on 0543055366.
