100 LETTERS TO
A compassionate initiative that collected heart-warming letters addressed to the late Sheikh Zayed from Suqia’s volunteers, DEWA employees, community members, school students and beneficiaries from Suqia’s projects.
Through this initiative, we organised two international voluntary field visits to Uganda and Upper Egypt in cooperation with our sister entity, the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Charity and Humanitarian Establishment (MBRHC) and DEWA to implement sustainable water projects that served the needs of communities in Uganda and Upper Egypt.
During the Holy Month of Ramadan, Suqia distributed more than 8 million water cups for Ramadan Iftar tents and mosques in collaboration with 15 charity organisations and associations across the UAE. Moreover, the initiative extended internationally for the first time to 13 countries, in collaboration with MBRHC. These countries included Uganda, Tajikistan, Chad, Egypt, Brazil, Canada, the USA, Palestine, the Philippines, Tunisia, Jordan, Ukraine and Bangladesh.
