DUBAI // The Dar Al Ber Society has spent Dh1.25 million building a hospital and supporting families in Egypt as part of its projects in Arab, Islamic, African and Asian countries.

The Ber Charity Hospital in Mansura cost Dh1 million. It features an orthopaedics department, internal medicine, dermatology, cardiology, ophthalmology, urology and general surgery and outpatient clinics.

The charity has also helped families support themselves by providing 200 sewing machines, water coolers and tankers. It paid for the marriages of 13 couples and the school and university fees for poor children. Wheelchairs were provided for special-needs cases.

“The society also donated seasonal assistance, such as Iftar or fast-breaking meals, Eid clothes and Adahi, or sacrificial meat, let alone the sponsorship of 5,334 orphans, six special-needs people and 168 low-income families,” said Eng Khalfan Khalifa Al Mazrouie, the Dar Al Ber Society chairman. “Egypt has always stood by all Arab countries at very critical moments. The noble fraternal relationship between Egypt and UAE is deeply rooted and reflects the culture, traditions and appreciation of the two peoples.”
