Mumbai: The holy month of Ramadan inspires acts of kindness, good deeds and charity, and such deeds done during this month are considered to be very sacred. As children are the future of any society, helping children overcome the barriers they face to achieve a healthy and bright future takes on special significance during this holy month.
UAE Exchange, the leading foreign exchange and money transfer brand, understands this perfectly and has tied up with UNICEF (United Nations International Children’s Fund) this Ramadan, donating AED 100,000 to help children around the world. This is the fourth consecutive association of UAE Exchange and the UN body.
COO – Global Operations, UAE Exchange, Y. Sudhir Kumar Shetty, said, “Depriving children of primary education is depriving society of progress. UNICEF has taken up a herculean task of helping those children who are in greatest need, thus providing them with an opportunity to improve their lives. UAE Exchange, as a socially conscious organisation, has always stood for causes that impacted the betterment of the society. Here too, we take pride in associating with UNICEF for this noble cause of bringing more smiles to the future generation.”
UNICEF Gulf Area Representative, Dr. Ibrahim El Ziq, said, “We are grateful for the continued support of our partner UAE Exchange over the last four years. By working with UAE Exchange and other partners, we are able to reach more children and help them survive and thrive. We look forward to a continued strong relationship that would benefit more children over the coming years.”
UAE Exchange strives to go beyond profits, to make a difference in the society by touching the lives of everyone positively. The remittance major regularly ties up with various NGOs to stand up for various social, humanitarian and environmental causes.
