The National Archives organized a charitable humanitarian initiative entitled "Absherou belkhair", or “Good Tidings"


The National Archives has concluded its charitable humanitarian initiative entitled "Absherou belkhair ", or “Good Tidings" in cooperation with the UAE Red Crescent Authority, through which employees were provided the opportunity to participate in charitable and humanitarian work, through their clothes and other kind donations to the needy.
All National Archives staff members highly commended, valued and directly interacted with the initiative, where the National Archives distributed cardboard boxes to them to provide their philanthropic donations of basic needs to the poor and needy, which it subsequently collected and handed over to the UAE Red Crescent Authority to distribute them to needy beneficiaries.
The National Archives' interest in such initiative comes within the framework of its societal responsibility, and its charitable humanitarian works as part of its national and moral duty, and as an important step towards sustainable development.
The National Archives has previously organized many similar initiatives, in cooperation with the UAE Red Crescent, for their great impact on the UAE society’s positive change and development, and their role in establishing and instilling in the UAE public the values of benevolence, Philanthropy and solidarity, which are the same values to which the National Archives is committed as part of its national role and duty.
The National Archives keenly continues its charitable and humanitarian work and role through participating in such charitable initiatives that are implemented even when many of its employees are working from home at this stage where the world is keen to achieve solidarity while adhering to social distancing as part of other necessary precautionary measures to counter and contain the virus and reduce its societal health, social and economic repercussions.
