Kerala Floods: Indian Businessmen donate AED 10 million to UAE Foundation’s Relief Campaign

Non-Resident Indian (NRI) businessmen in United Arab Emirates (UAE) have donated a sum of Rs 10 million to the Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation for the Kerala flood victims, a few hours only after the foundation launched its relief campaign in response to the directives of UAE leaders to form a national emergency committee to provide assistance to the flood-striken Indian state.

In its report, UAE’s leading national daily Khaleej Times reported that Indian businessmen Yusuff Ali M.A., owner of the Lulu Hypermarket chain worldwide and Dr. B. R. Shetty, Chief Executive Officer, Executive Vice Chairman of NMC Health PLC, have donated Dh5.00 million each, in response to the UAE emergency campaign for standing by the flood-hit victims.

Director-General of the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Humanitarian Foundation, Mohammed Haji Al Khouri, commended the generous support, provided by the UAE-based Indian businessmen in the country and their rapid response to the UAE leadership’s directives.

The Foundation is continuing its relief campaigns to stand by the victims, he said, calling upon all charity actors to chip in and support their brothers anywhere in the world, the newspaper further reported.
