Emirates Islamic Bank hosts children's day out

Emirates Islamic Bank, one of the leading Islamic financial institutions in the UAE, recently hosted a special 'Back to School' day out for orphans and children from low income families in Dubai.

The participating children and families are supported by Dubai Charity and UAE Red Crescent Society. The children spent the day enjoying the various games at Dubai Sega World and testing out their acrobatic skills at the Dubai Ice Rink, followed by lunch at one of the mall's many food outlets. The event was managed with the support of volunteers from Emirates Islamic Bank, Dubai Charity and UAE Red Crescent Society and transport was provided by the Road and Transportation Authority in Dubai.

"At Emirates Islamic Bank, we are committed to making a positive impact on our local community, and this is just one of the many social initiatives we run throughout the year," Faisal Aqil, Deputy CEO-Consumer Wealth Management, Emirates Islamic Bank. "We are grateful for the blessings bestowed on our children and believe it is our duty to provide them with a sense of joy and fun. Community support is all about teamwork, and we are very grateful to Red Crescent, Dubai Charity and the Road and Transportation Authority in Dubai for all their help and support. Without their generous contribution, this day would not have been possible," he added.

Dubai Charity is a locally based charity dedicated to supporting vulnerable members of the community in Dubai through a series of fund raising activities and is especially dedicated to helping orphans from across the Emirate.

Red Crescent Society for the United Arab Emirates is the regional arm of international charity The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the world's largest humanitarian network that reaches 150 million people in 187 National Societies through the work of over 13 million volunteers.
