The Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an, the Government of Abu Dhabi’s official channel to receive social contributions, has encouraged communities across the emirate to take part in its Abu Dhabi Gives Back campaign during the month of Ramadan.

The entity has rolled out six new volunteering opportunities across various fields, including health, education, environment, infrastructure and the social sector. The entity aims to support and empower the community to contribute to delivering sustainable, innovative solutions and create long-lasting impact that benefits the Abu Dhabi community.

His Excellency Faisal Alhmoudi, Executive Director of the Social Investment Fund at the Authority of Social Contribution Ma’an, said: “Abu Dhabi Gives Back is synonymous with the spirit of the holy month, with contributions to the Social Investment Fund crucial to address pressing social priorities.

“The Abu Dhabi community is generous, and we are grateful for contributions shared year-round, but we encourage those who can contribute funds to consider supporting solutions that address the social priorities that matter to community members and enhance their lifestyle.”

The entity’s fundraising covers various programmes, including a collaboration with Khalifa Foundation focusing on the education sector to support low-income families and social schools. Khalifa Foundation is supported by the Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an to spearhead initiatives that provides tuition assistance for low-income families, and fund social schools.

In addition to driving contributions to support significant projects targeting key groups of the community, the entity is also encouraging volunteering during the month of Ramadan across an array of areas including distributing food baskets, sports, visits and activities with cancer patients, and distribution of Iftar meals to road users during the breaking of the fast.

Volunteering opportunities can be explored, and contributions can be made via, or through the application available on Android and Apple devices.
