UAE launches first Waqf focused on meeting needs of women and children 

UAE: Dubai has launched the UAE’s first-ever Waqf dedicated to supporting women and children through a collaboration between the Awqaf and Minors Affairs Foundation and the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children.  

The residential Waqf is worth AED30 million (US$8.16 million), and was established under the directives of Sheikh Mohammed Rashid Al Maktoum, the vice- president and prime minister of the UAE and also the ruler of Dubai.  

The Shariah compliant charitable endowment “aims to generate a sustainable income to contribute to the care and rehabilitation of women and children and meet their needs by giving them shelter and protection and direct support in line with international human rights principles,” the Dubai Media Office said. It also offers free services to children of different nationalities across the UAE.
