The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has donated Dh 1 million for providing clothes to as many as 25,000 children, in support of the campaign launched recently by Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, to provide clothes to one million deprived children worldwide.

The RTA yesterday staged an in-house donation drive for its employees. The drive will continue till 19th Ramadan, coinciding with UAE Humanitarian Day, which also marks the ninth anniversary of the death of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

Mattar Al Tayer, Chairman of the Board and Executive Director of the RTA, said, "His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is a pioneer when it comes to humanitarian aid and giving. He is known for launching humanitarian and social initiatives reaching out to disadvantaged people around the world. His initiatives include Dubai Cares, which is aimed at promoting education in poor countries, and the Noor Dubai campaign for rekindling the hope in blind people. This recent initiative complements the giving drive of the UAE set by the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

"The RTA has placed boxes for collecting donations from employees, and sent e-mail messages urging all staff to interact with the campaign. This campaign will continue till 19th Ramadan when the funds raised will be credited to the account of the Campaign," added Mr. Al Tayer. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
