Public can now contribute to Lebanese aid effort online

posted on 02/08/2006: 837 views



Dubai eGovernment is the latest entity to get involved in the aid effort for Lebanon, following the launch of an online donation campaign.



Putting technology to good use, Dubai eGovernment has set up a special link on its website, http://www.dubai.ae providing the public with a convenient way to donate to the humanitarian cause online.



According to the organisers, funds raised will be donated to the Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charitable and Humanitarian Foundation. The site offers a secure e-payment option, and those with a Commercial Bank of Dubai account can also donate by direct debit. E-dirham donation options are also available.



"Dubai eGovernment will extend all IT and technological support for the campaign...and we urge all other media organisations and charities to join in this noble and humanitarian cause," said Salem Al Shair, eServices Director at Dubai eGovernment.



The special appeal page will remain open while the urgent need for humanitarian support in Lebanon remains. A Dubai-based online auction site launched http://www.souq.com/lebanon yesterday, to raise funds to support the work of the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC) and the Red Crescent in Lebanon.



"It is our heartfelt wish for the UAE community, both individuals and businesses, to support the victimised Lebanese people," said Ronaldo Mouchawar, CEO of Souq.com. The website provides users with the option of pledging an item for auction, donating money, spreading the word, and assisting with the initiative. (Gulf News)
