The Mohammed bin Rashid Humanitarian and Charitable Foundation has spent over Dh45 million on various projects since it was established in 1997. Khalifa Mohammed Al Shaer, Director General of the Foundation, stressed that the objectives of the foundation are in line with Islamic teachings. The Foundation is keen to help needy people and save thousands of lives by providing a suitable living environment and good living standards. Its activities include scientific, Islamic and architectural projects, in addition to relief work, pilgrimage, Umra, and marriage.



General Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and UAE Defence Minister, personally follows up on the Foundation's activities. He also provides funding for some of its projects. Al Shaer explained that the Foundation encourages people to help the needy and orphans. It establishes mosques and schools. Developing and enhancing the educational, health, and economic situation of UAE residents are an integral part of the Foundation's mission.



Apart from humanitarian work, the Foundation publishes a number of Islamic books and references, such as Saheeh Al Bukhari and Saheeh Muslim. Al Shaer also explained that while the Foundation has achieved a great deal, there remains a lot to be done in the future. The Foundation is planning to offer more technical and financial aid to centres that take care of people with special needs. Over 4,000 families are currently receiving financial support from the Foundation. (The Gulf News)
