OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
ENGAGE: TOGETHER WE ARE GOOD WORKED TO DEPLOY A PROACTIVE, FLEXIBLE APPROACH TO RESPOND TO AN EMERGING CRISIS.
4,200 While we are still experiencing the effects of COVID-19 worldwide, we in Abu Dhabi are stronger by coming together than if each of us dealt with the pandemic alone. We saw volunteers sharing their time to help their community members. Contributors got involved in innovative ways, from providing hotel rooms free-of-charge for health workers to use between busy shifts at the hospital to donating through our new online fundraising portal. The groundswell of support from our community allowed Abu Dhabi to approach the pandemic as one, and to emerge stronger.
We are humbled by the trust afforded to us by our Emirate s leadership, partners and communities, and it s very important for us to maintain this trust throughout everything we do.
400,000 COMMUNITY MEMBERS SUPPORTED
In response to an unfolding crisis, we aim to provide support where it is most needed. For example, as part of the Together We Are Good campaign, Together We Share allowed people across Abu Dhabi to contribute, including via SMS, meals to workers during Ramadan.
Together, we helped provide 27 million meals to 340,000 workers in 35 complexes. I volunteered in Ma an s food support scheme because I wanted to give something back to the UAE community. I love to
volunteer because it makes me feel good helping people in need.
