Khalfan Khalifa Al Mazrouei, Chairman of Dar Alber Society, stressed that the Society’s initiative constitutes a translation of the values of our true religion, and in response to the directives of our wise leadership, and reflects the values and philosophy of “Dar Al Ber” and its policy of standing by the homeland in all circumstances and situations, emphasising the importance of circumventing the country and its leadership, single, compact row, especially in current conditions.
Khalfan Al Mazrouei pointed to the initiative of an Emirati family group, through the Dar Al Ber Society, during the past few days, to donate and support the state’s preventive efforts and precautionary measures, with a value of Dhs12 million, in favour of purchasing and providing ambulances, medical equipment and equipment for ambulance operations, provided to the Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services.
