Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation continues comprehensive sterilisation plan
The sterilization process that commenced last week at the Foundation’s buildings, will continue periodically as part of nation-wide efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus
Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation (AMAF) announced that it will continue the comprehensive sterilisation and disinfection drive in the Foundation’s buildings across Dubai, within the framework of the National Sterilization Programme, launched by the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Ministry of Interior in coordination with the relevant federal and local authorities on March 26, 2020.
In line with the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) and complying with best international practices, the sterilisation process that commenced last week at the Foundation’s buildings, will continue periodically as part of nation-wide efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
HE Ali Al Mutawa, Secretary General of AMAF, said: “Well-aligned with its social responsibility and keenness in prioritizing public health and well-being and as part of its sustained mandate to care for its minors and safeguard its endowments, AMAF is taking all necessary measures to ensure a comprehensive cleansing and sterilization process at its buildings across the emirate.”
Al Mutawa praised the cooperation of all concerned parties in ensuring the success and thoroughness of the sterilization program and other preventive and precautionary measures. He also commended the ‘Community Solidarity Fund against COVID-19’, an initiative launched by the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai in reducing the health, humanitarian, economic and social repercussions of COVID-19 in the emirate.
The Secretary General reaffirmed the commitment of the Foundation to supporting all organizations that are actively involved in combatting the threat of COVID-19, most notably the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority.
He added: “AMAF is dedicated to this national mission and we are confident that the UAE can develop a model to be followed globally as it joins international efforts to eliminate the scourge of the virus. The UAE’s efforts to bring together public and private sector organizations and individuals from different social groups under a united umbrella as it pushes ahead with extending humanitarian assistance not only to the local affected population but also to regions most severely impacted by the pandemic, have already come in for international praise.”
