HE Easa Saleh Al Gurg, KCVO, CBE has been involved with charitable work for many decades. As the number of charitable projects that he was involved in, began to multiply, His Excellency felt it was prudent to formalize these activities and create an organization that would operate on his behalf. The creation of Easa Saleh Al Gurg Charity Foundation was unanimously seconded by the members of the Al Gurg family during a meeting in 2010.
The Easa Al Gurg Charity Foundation was established in October 2010 (1434 AH/2010 AD) under the decree Number 21 of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai with capital fully financed from the founder's private funds and real estate. In keeping with the founder's wishes, the Foundation also operates independent of the earnings from the Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group LLC.
We adopt charitable and humanitarian projects which include cultural and community-based non-profitable activities. The Foundation's work is directed by a clear and compelling vision: "To enable people in need to help themselves.”
To be involved in community projects and initiatives which primarily focus on education and health. While we do not seek financial support from others, we do "partner" with like-minded individuals and organizations to achieve common goals. The aim of the Foundation is to help raise the quality of life particularly for those who are young, disadvantaged or elderly.
