AJMAN, H.H. Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi Foundation, HRNF, chaired the second meeting of HRNF for 2018.

At the start of the meeting, Sheikh Ammar welcomed the board's members and praised their role in strengthening the HRNF's work while highlighting the support of H.H. Sheikh Humaid bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Supreme Council Member and Ruler of Ajman, for local charity and humanitarian initiatives.

Sheikha Azza Al Nuaimi, Director-General of the HRNF, suggested, to the board, to increase the maximum level of assistance offered by the HRNF to those benefitting from its "Yusr Initiative." The suggestion was approved by Sheikh Ammar, his deputy and the board members.

Sheikha Azza noted what was implemented from recommendations of the board's previous meeting with regards to the HRNF's projects, in light of its goals and its duty to allocate Zakat funds after receiving a Fatwa.

Sheikh Ammar, his deputy and the board members approved their planned use of Zakat funds for 2018. Sheikh Ammar also instructed the board to create a policy for each clause.

The board members ratified the minutes of their previous meeting and reviewed the latest updates and what was issued based on their decisions and recommendations mentioned in the minutes.

The board agreed to assess several companies for a contract to maintain the residences of owners who asked the foundation to restore their homes. These companies will be invited to the next meeting, and the board will choose the best company for the contract.

The participants of the meeting recommended the signing of an agreement between HRNF and a real estate company, to transfer the revenues of the HRNF's buildings to their account, after deducting administrative and maintenance costs.

Sheikha Azza highlighted certain cases that require assistance which is not covered by the HRNF's policy and presented a film on the work of the HRNF's "Food Bank Project" in Ajman and the daily distribution process to various areas and neighbourhoods of the emirate.
