Financial support from foundation
To date, Al Jalila Foundation has invested Dh7.5 million in treating 86 cancer patients from the ages of two to 90 and invested Dh9 million into 33 cancer research programmes.
A spokesperson said the foundation was dedicated to funding research vital to decrease the incidences of paediatric cancer and, ultimately, finding a cure. With the help and engagement of the community, the foundation could improve the lives of children in the UAE. Mengsitu Beshir Shere, who works in the labour department, told
Gulf News that he and his wife were devastated when Euale was diagnosed with leukaemia. “I am thankful that Al Jalila Foundation stepped in to bear the cost of his treatment. Our lives have been forever changed and we are so grateful that our beautiful boy has regained his health.”
