ABU DHABI - The Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) donated Zakat money worth AED6.5 million to support the programmes and projects of the Emirates Red Crescent (ERC).
Both sides signed a cooperation agreement to coordinate the distribution of the donation to those eligible to receive Zakat.
The bank’s administration welcomed the move and the signing of the agreement with the ERC, which took place after several joint coordination meetings, as it will help establish a framework for enabling community partnerships and implementing joint initiatives in the future.
