Digital Dubai launched today an integrated set of digital services designed for facilitating charity and humanitarian work via the “DubaiNow” application, the city’s one-stop-shop mobile application that allows anyone to access over 250 government and private sector services.

These efforts reflect Digital Dubai’s commitment as an enabler of the digital transformation of the city, and in executing its strategy aiming at digitalizing life in Dubai. This commitment is driven by the authority’s dedication to realizing the directives and vision of the leadership by delivering integrated digital experiences that enhance people’s happiness and well-being. This is achieved by enabling individuals living in Dubai to conduct transactions efficiently and in accordance with the highest standards of quality.  

The DubaiNow application, developed by Digital Dubai, provides a secure and convenient channel for contributing to social initiatives.  It enables users to donate for the Mothers’ Endowment campaign, launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President & Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai, as part of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Global Initiatives. This Initiative allows individuals to donate in honour of their mothers through the application, thus promoting the culture of charitable work and reinforcing social and family values. Moreover, the application facilitates donations to “Jood”, the integrated community contributions platform in Dubai. This platform aims at introducing charity initiatives, encouraging contributors to actively participate and establish solid foundations for integrated sustainable development in alignment with the goals of Dubai Social Agenda 33. With a user-friendly interface, the platform provides direct donations with various options including meals for fasting individuals during the holy month of Ramadan, paying Zakat Al Fitr, Zakat Al Maal among others.  

Commenting on these efforts, H.E. Matar Al Hemeiri, Chief Executive of Digital Dubai Government Establishment: “Dubai and the United Arab Emirates have always set an example in contributing towards charitable endeavours, an effort which is rooted in our culture and guided by the directives and vision of our wise leadership. The significant advancements in digital transformation that Dubai is witnessing imposes increasing needs and requires managing expectations to align with the evolving digital lifestyles. With 99% of the population using the internet to conduct their transactions and a carry out their daily activities there is an increasing demand for creative digital solutions to meet these needs efficiently. Hence, it is very important to provide digital channels to make charitable donations seamless. The Zakat al-Fitr service through the DubaiNow application is an example of a successful model due to its user-friendly interface and widespread adoption among various segments of society.”

We are proud to provide support for humanitarian initiatives that have global impact and social values including facilitating donation through the “Jood” platform and to the Mother’s Endowment campaign. These initiatives reflect our leadership’s dedication to honouring mothers and expressing gratitude towards them. The development of these services is the result of shared efforts and collaboration with numerous government entities in Dubai.
