Emirates Foundation, an independent philanthropic organisation set up by the Abu Dhabi government, has announced the launch of its “Volunteering” Mobile App as part of its 10th annual Ramadan Campaign.
The Volunteering Mobile App will aim to make volunteering easy and accessible thereby allowing Emirati youth an opportunity to engage in activities for community support and development across the nation during Ramzan.
Powered by Emirates Foundation’s Takatof programme, the campaign is in line with the #Year of Giving and the vision set by the nation’s leadership aiming to instil a sense of civic engagement and responsibility amongst youth, the report said on Monday.
It also aims at providing them the opportunity to support community needs while developing their personal and leadership skills in the process.
This year’s campaign embraces a wide range of community activities, including the distribution of essential items and preparing Iftar meals for labourers and lower income families.
Renovating the houses of needy families, assisting those with special needs perform their Umrah duties, as well as the gathering of food and clothes from different government entities and distributing them to lower income families.
Building on previous years of successful partnership with the Make a Wish Foundation, this year both parties will organise an activity for children with incurable diseases, help granting their wishes and offering gifts through entertaining activities.
