Through a culture of corporate social responsibility amongst employees Dubai Duty Free has impacted many people both globally and locally. Dubai Duty Free Foundation aims to raise funds for charitable causes with a particular interest in programs that benefit children.
Al Jalila Foundation has been a grateful beneficiary of Dubai Duty Free since 2017 when they pledged AED 5 million to support our Ta’alouf Training Program to benefit children of determination and invest in medical research. Through AED 500,000 donated annually over the course of 10 years, Al Jalila Foundation has already graduated 1020 parents and teachers from 16 cohorts of Ta’alouf Training program to empower caregivers of children of determination and invested in several vital research studies.
In appreciation for their amazing contributions, Al Jalila Foundation was delighted to welcome Dubai Duty Free to Al Jalila Foundation to engrave their name on Bassmat Rashid Bin Saeed donor recognition wall taking their place amongst other pioneers of hope.
Dubai Duty Free CEO and Executive Vice Chairman Colm McLoughlin commented on the recognition, “We have been supporting Al Jalila Foundation since 2017 and we are honoured to support the organisation’s mission to advance medical research in the UAE. Today more than ever, we need to safeguard the health and safety of our people and continue to maintain the values of philanthropy.”
