   Blood donation camp in Al Ain and in Abu Dhabi

On an annual basis, Al Fara'a Foundation invests in the largest blood donation drive in the region. These annual blood donation drives are organised and facilitated by seconded staff of the Alfara'a Group. The most recent blood donation camp was arranged on 5 July 2008, where 800 pints of blood were donated. All logistics, facilities, food and beverages for blood donors and scores of volunteers were provided.


   Medical camp in association with the Indira Ghandi Veekshanam Forum

On 6 June 2008, an annual medical camp to the value of AED75,000/- was arranged for 987 people from various susceptible communities in Dubai. With each medical camp, no expense is spared to ensure that world class facilities are provided, whether it be the supply of transport for medical delegates from a broad base of medical disciplines; or the building of sturdy infrastructure. The attendees come from near and far to obtain a medical examination and medical treatment when necessary. This intervention serves to prevent the spread of communicable disease through various vulnerable communities. Over 100 employees were seconded to this project and Al Fara'a Foundation granted them special leave to recover from the gruelling weeks of preparation.


   The Zayed Higher Organisation for Humanitarian Care, Special Needs and Minor Affairs

A recent addition to the stable of Al Fara'a Foundation's community projects is the philanthropy of the Zayed Higher Organisation for Humanitarian Care, Special Needs and Minor Affairs ("Zayed Organisation"). The Zayed Organisation was founded on the tenets of Islam and caters for the needs of various vulnerable minors in the community. With an orphanage in Abu Dhabi and a support centre for the children of single parents in Al Ain, Zayed supports approximately 100 minors. On 23 June 2008, the Annual Ceremony to honour the minors was supported by Al Fara'a Foundation to the value of AED100,000/-. Additionally, three Arabic books per child were donated. The pack of three books per child consisted of the Quran, an encyclopedia as well as a book of 1,000 short stories.


   Annual medical camp in Al Ain

For the last four years, Al Fara'a Foundation has facilitated and sponsored medical camps in the Abu Dhabi Emirate for the benefit of various vulnerable communities. The most recent medical camp organised for the benefit of the entire community occurred on 15 February 2008. Twenty five doctors, the Al Jimmi Hospital, the Indian Social Centre and Al Fara'a Foundation joined forces and provided 1,000 community members with free world class medical testing and treatment. As with each medical camp, Al Fara'a Foundation invests in the initiative to such an extent that the event is fully funded, whether it be a packet of tablets or an examination table.

   Assistance of Amnesty Seekers

In August 2007, an amount of AED375,000/- was donated to assist the United Arab Emirates in their campaign to repatriate approximately 1,900 displaced labourers back to their home countries. Many of these labourers were without work and unable to exit the country due to financial constraints. As a result, these migrant workers found themselves in a situation of abject poverty. This sizeable donation covered basic necessities such as food and shelter, transport, temporary housing as well as the costs of the journey home for these desparate people. True to Al Fara'a Foundation's style of personal care, over 60 employees of Al Fara'a were deputised to cater for every need of the beneficiaries - right down to helping them complete volumes of paperwork and translating documents required by embassies.
