  • Staff fundraiser and corporate donation contribute to the UAE’s ‘Tarahum – for Gaza’ campaign 

Arada has teamed up with The Big Heart Foundation to raise AED600,000 for the Tarahum, the ‘Compassion – for Gaza’ campaign launched by the UAE to provide relief to Palestinians affected by the war in the Gaza Strip. 

The master developer donated a total of AED550,000 for the campaign, which was supplemented by an additional AED50,000 raised through staff contributions through the YallaGive donation and crowdfunding platform. 

The fund will be directed to the emergency relief program that The Big Heart Foundation has initiated to aid Palestinian children and families. The Big Heart Foundation has been leading an appeal for donations as part of the “Tarahum – for Gaza” campaign, which aims to mitigate the severity of the humanitarian conditions and alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable groups, especially children, who constitute nearly half of the Gaza Strip’s population. 

More than one million children are affected by the current conflict, and the ‘Tarahum – for Gaza’ campaign will work to meet children’s and mothers’ basic needs, in addition to providing health supplies and general hygiene materials.
