The United Arab Emirates (UAE) Ministry of Community Development (MOCD) in association with Dubai Holding announced the launch of ‘Masaai Al Khair’, which provides home maintenance and renovation support for low income families in Dubai.
The slogan was ‘Love and Loyalty for the Generous Zayed’.
Home maintenance works will take place in Al Bada, Abu Hail, Al Jafilia, Al Hamriya, Al Rashidiya, Al Barsha 2, Al Safa, Al Twar, Al Qusais, Al Satwa, Jumeirah, Al Quoz, Muhaisnah, Al Mizhar, Al Manara, Al Nahda, Al Waheda, Al Warqaa, Al Wasl, Hatta, Oud Al Mutaina and Nad Al Hammar.
MOCD will identify eligible social security beneficiaries and low-income families in Dubai through a qualification process and specific criteria that studies individual cases. Dubai Municipality will take on the evaluation of the residential units and technical execution of the project.
Masaai Al Khair is a main example of a public-private partnership that promotes social responsibility as core values in the UAE society, strengthens communities and motivates citizens and residents to contribute to the country’s development.
The Ministry’s housing services range from the provision of adequate accommodation according to the number of family members to house maintenance and renovation assistance as well as expansion and extension of existing properties to suit the needs of the families.
