Ajay Sobhraj Au Finja, Founder and Chairman of Dubai-based Finja Jewellery, has extended a generous donation to support the UAE’s efforts to combat COVID-19.
The gesture reflects the support that the Dubai business community has extended to the authorities’ measures to safeguard the health of the community.
Both Emirati and expatriate business leaders have come together to show their support for the UAE government and aid efforts to ensure there is enough capacity to accommodate patients.
In a letter addressed to the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) titled ‘To Support and Give Back to the City That Cares,’ the Indian businessman who has called Dubai his home for 25 years, has donated a fully-equipped building in Jumeirah Lake Towers to be used in the country's fully integrated strategy against COVID-19, for the purpose of quarantining affected patients.
The 77,000 sq. ft property can accommodate upto 400 people.
The building has undergone all necessary maintenance, including deep cleaning, sanitisation and air conditioning servicing, to ensure the facilities meet the required health and safety standards.
Ajay Sobhraj Au Finja said: “I believe that in such challenging times, it is imperative for the community to come together and support the country we reside in to overcome this pandemic. I am extremely pleased to offer my assistance to the government during this critical period and support the city that has continued to contribute to my success and growth for the past 25 years.”
DoH urged the public to rely only on official sources when dealing with all news related to the novel virus.
With more than 3,215 people across the world dead and over 94,000 infected in 81 countries and territories, coronavirus (COVID-19) remains unstoppable and a serious threat to humanity.
The sterilisation was carried out by specialised companies, according to the directives of the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and the guidelines of the World Health Organisation.
Pakistan also reported 4,734 new virus cases, raising its overall infections to 93,983. With the latest 97 virus-related deaths, the highest 24-hour increase to its fatalities, as authorities urged volunteers to motivate people to adhere to social distancing regulations to contain the spread of the virus.
With the Hajj Committee announcing full refunds of the fees for the ensuing Hajj 2020 season, the pilgrimage dreams of thousands of Muslim faithful are shattered.
The group were travelling through Badakshan province to assist security forces in the area, officials said. A local commander was among the fatalities, provincial governor's spokesman Sanaullah Rohani told the media.
