Omniyat Dania was established by Dana Al Askari and Hasan Alami in the memory of their daughter, Dania Alami, who lost her fight to cancer in 2010 a week short of her 13th birthday.
In April 2008, Dania was diagnosed with a rare cancer (rhabdomyosarcoma) that accounts for 3% of childhood cancers. After losing Dania, her family sought solace through their tireless efforts supporting children with cancer.
Omniyat Dania, in partnership with Al Jalila Foundation, honours Dania’s legacy whilst spreading hope and joy to children with cancer.
100% of the funds raised through Omniyat Dania will be invested in medical treatment and research of childhood cancer in the UAE so that the investments of today will be the cures of tomorrow.
