Sharjah Chamber: Best Government Entity Contributor to Volunteer Work    03/06/2017

Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry won first place in the 14th edition of “Sharjah Award for Voluntary Work” for 2016, as part of the “best government entity in the field of voluntary work” category, in appreciation for its efforts that support voluntary and charitable work in the UAE.

The announcement of Sharjah Chamber’s win came in an official ceremony organized by “Sharjah Award for Voluntary Work” to honor winners of its 14th edition for 2016 and its 13th edition for 2015, at the amphitheater of Al Qassimia University last Thursday, as Sharjah Chamber contributed to more than 143 voluntary works last year worth more than Dh19 million.  

Abdullah Sultan Al Oweis, Chairman of the Board of Sharjah Chamber, expressed the Chamber’s gratitude to His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qassimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah, for his patronage and boundless support for efforts and programs that encourage voluntary work and reflect the UAE’s endeavor to instill the concept of giving as a culture and societal approach, and he expressed Sharjah Chamber’s pride in this win that coincides with the Year of Goodness, an additional motivation for the work team at Sharjah Chamber to continue voluntary.

Al Oweis said this win crowns efforts made by Sharjah Chamber to instill the concept of societal responsibility among society’s segments and especially the economic sector, as the Chamber represents the private sector in Sharjah and works hard to elevate and grow it, including voluntary work. Al Oweis added that winning Sharjah Award for Voluntary Work reflects the Chamber’s bright record in providing material and moral support by sponsoring many projects and educational, social, humanitarian, and cultural programs, sports and the arts programs, out of its strong belief in the necessity for partnerships with all segments of society.

Al Oweis added that this win is the fruit of hard work over a period of three years, and comes within the frame of the Chamber’s strategic plan to assist in humanitarian work, and the Chamber’s keenness to leave its mark on voluntary work. Al Oweis expressed his gratitude to the Award’s board of trustees, headed by Afaf Ibrahim Al Merry, for horning the Chamber for its efforts, and praised the spirit of giving among the Chamber’s staff who work hard to support of voluntary work.

On this occasion Khaled bin Butti Al Hajeri, Director General of Sharjah Chamber, met the work team that supervised preparing the Chamber’s winning dossier that won the award, and relayed board members’ and chairman’s congratulations on this achievement. 

Al Hajeri praised the efforts made by all team members of the Chamber and cooperation by all staff to support the winning dossier. Al Hajeri indicated the importance of continuing voluntary work in all its forms for its positive effects on society.

Sharjah Chamber had increased its contribution to societal responsibility by organizing, sponsoring and supporting activities and events of economic, national, humanitarian, educational and cultural significance, in addition to sports, health, the media and the environment, over the past year. The Chamber presented Dh440,000 for the personal jacket of the wife of the ruler of Sharjah, Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammad Al Qassimi, Chairperson of Nama Women Advancement Establishment and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Eminent Advocate for Refugee Children, which her highness had donated to enter an auction to support refugees around the world, within the “Jeans for Refugees” initiative in the London at Saatchi Gallery.
