Al Gurg Charity Foundation 2014
Department for orphans & poor families
Al Gurg Charity Foundation has established a new division for orphans and poor families residing inside and outside the UAE at the beginning of 2014.
This division is currently preparing a list of charities in multiple countries to provide assistance to orphans outside the UAE with the necessary approval and assistance
from the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities department (IACAD) in Dubai. The Foundation has received a number of case applications from orphans residing in
the UAE prior to the setting up of this division.
“Emirates Charity Gateway” project
In the framework of cooperation with IACAD in Dubai, Al Gurg Charity Foundation was one of the first institutions to adopt the “Emirates Charity Gateway” which was
launched by IACAD at the end of 2013. Al Gurg Charity Foundation began the roll-out of the project at the beginning of 2014.
The project aims to build an electronically integrated system that serves the charity sector, through the management of internal processes of the charities, by
facilitating financial audits, providing electronic services between IACAD and charities, creating mechanisms that enable people from all over the world to donate to
charitable associations via the Internet and smart phones.
This project links all charities in Dubai electronically, allowing them to operate as a single association in harmony. It includes a unified database, to enhance relations
and cooperation between different charities to extend their support to the needy both inside and outside the UAE. It aims to follow the guidelines of the late Sheikh
Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan and his son HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, President of the United Arab Emirates and also HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al
Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai.
