Dubai-based business man offers free accommodation for homeless during Covid-19

-

The ongoing pandemic has hit everyone hard, especially those with no security to fall back on. The economic and income disparities have only increased in this time, with those dependent on daily wages being rendered homeless in massive numbers across the globe.

Inspired by the ongoing efforts of the UAE government to safeguard and take care of its people, Mr Ali Rao, CEO of Rao Holdings L.L.C in Dubai, comes forward to offer free accommodation options to those who have no roof over their head during these testing times.

Mr Rao currently has a capacity of 100 accommodation options that he wishes to offer to the homeless so that they can have a proper place to live till things regularize for them to return to their respective countries. These accommodation options are spread across Al Quoz, Jebel Ali and Muhaisnah areas of Dubai. Rao has recently sheltered over 20 homeless labourers in Al Quoz area and wishes to reach out to more of those in need of housing during these times of struggle.

Mr. Ali Rao, Chief Executive Officer, Rao Holdings L.L.C. says, “I felt heartbroken and if I would stand by and watch, I would feel very small as a human being, I won’t be able to stand in front of the creator I thought to myself. These are some very difficult times for all of us. But we can make it a bit bearable by doing the most that we can for those who need help. It was my basic instinct to be honest to offer them shelter. I am sure anyone would have done the same.”

Shamsher Ali Rao has invested considerable efforts towards successfully establishing Rao Foundation for social welfare projects and philanthropic initiatives.
