Dubai Electricity as well as Water Authority's (DEWA) Ladies's Board released its 6th Abayaty drive, in partnership with Human Appeal International in 2011. The Abayaty campaign gives garments for 3,000 families each year. The project is part of DEWA's Corporate Social Duty (CSR) to support charity and also humanitarian work.
The Female's Committee has actually designated marked boxes in a number of DEWA's buildings and offered special plastic bags as well as boxes to accumulate abayas, which are after that folded and packed. The Board has actually designated a variety of volunteers from DEWA's female staff to connect with the contributors and facilitate collecting donations.
"DEWA's Female Committee continuously improves its initiatives to offer the area much better and to enhance group work as well as enhance voluntary work among DEWA workers. The committee actively supports social development in Dubai via a team of innovative activities and initiatives. The Women's Board at DEWA is always dedicated to involve with its participants on non-work related activities. We make every effort to enhance our involvement whatsoever we can to achieve social communication as well as to reinforce social networking among all DEWA's female staff members and also society as a whole," said Khawla Al Mehairi, Chairperson of the Women's Committee at DEWA.
Al Mehairi stressed the Board's commitment to triggering the part of women in all walks of life to help achieve the vision of the UAE's sensible management to establish the leading placement that ladies play in building society and boosting the UAE's position as a model in the move to empower women.
“The Women’s Committee always enhances cooperation and joint work with charity organisations and other Women’s Committees from other government bodies and departments to achieve the goals set by the Committee.
