On Tuesday, Dubai Health revealed a Dh50-million initiative aimed at delivering medical care to 3,000 underprivileged children annually at Al Jalila Children’s Hospital.

Named the ‘Child Fund’ and initiated by the Al Jalila Foundation, this fund extends the organization’s longstanding commitment to transforming lives and offering a renewed lease on life for deserving youngsters.

Leveraging the support of generous donors and compassionate individuals, the foundation has already played a pivotal role in facilitating medical interventions for over 8,600 patients grappling with life-threatening conditions, such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and various chronic illnesses. Notably, 30% of these beneficiaries are children.

“The Child Fund will serve as a dedicated children’s charity programme designed to raise funds for providing essential, life-saving medical support to children in need,” said Dr. Raja Al Gurg, chairperson of Al Jalila Foundation Board of Directors and board member of Dubai Health.

“With this new fund, we pledge to extend the reach of our care and provide renewed hope for a brighter and more promising tomorrow for even more children. ‘The Child Fund’ reaffirms our heartfelt commitment to securing a healthy future for our children. Today, we proudly recognize the unwavering dedication and generosity of our donors and supporters who, together, united by care and compassion, are lighting the path to healing young lives.”

At the launch event, ‘The Giving Wall’ was revealed as a gesture of appreciation for donors who have positively impacted children’s lives through their support to the Al Jalila Foundation. These contributors were invited to sign a pledge in solidarity with the Dh50-million annual fund.

Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, vice-chairman of the Dubai Health Board of Directors, expressed his heartfelt thanks to all donors and contributors, acknowledging their pivotal role in upholding the highest standards of excellence within Dubai’s health system.

Notable partners of the foundation include the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment, Easa Saleh Al Gurg Charity Foundation, Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department, Awqaf Dubai, Albatha Holding, Iffco, and Tarahum.

“The launch of ‘The Child Fund’ underscores our steadfast dedication to ensuring comprehensive care for children, which is a paramount focus within Dubai’s health system … Through such community initiatives, our goal is to extend support and deliver treatment to the largest number of children, with the ultimate aim of enabling them to lead normal lives,” Sheikh Mansoor said during the launch.

While touring Al Jalila Children’s Hospital, Sheikh Mansoor visited a cohort of young patients and received an overview of the hospital’s specialized services, emphasizing its dedication to providing healthcare tailored to the needs and comfort of children.
