A total of 172 plane tickets worth AED184,040 or approximately Php2.5-million has been provided to displaced expats in the country to return to their home countries. 

The initiative, Community Solidarity Fund Against Covid-19, was initiated by Dubai’s Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department (IACAD), in coordination with the Permanent Committee for Labor Affairs. 

“As we recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, this important gesture follows the example that our leadership has set in extending charitable support i  times of crisis without discrimination. IACAD is keen to diversify its efforts to cover not only practical, financial and developmental assistance but also support in domains related to knowledge and scientific pursuits. The nature of our assistance takes on different forms and dimensions and is aimed at supporting people who are in critical need of assistance,” Dr. Hamad Al Sheikh Ahmad Al Shaibani, Director General of IACAD, told WAM.
