On H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum

"I feel extremely happy and comfortable when I help fill the heart of a deprived individual with joy and happiness in building a school for those who couldn’t get education or construct a Masjid to the faithful who couldn’t raise enough funds to build their own house of worship."


The above quote sizes up the stature of the man, H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and the Minister of Finance & Industry of UAE. He plays a vital role in the UAE Economy, such as, Dubai Municipality, Dubai Aluminum, Dubai World Trade Center, and wide ranging investments in hotels, apartments, buildings, banking and finance facilities. The list is unending!


Beyond all of these, for H.H. Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Al Maktoum Foundation finds a special place in his heart; his way of looking at philanthropy is involved with the whole idea of transforming society by the innovations created by philanthropy. Hence, the realms of Al Maktoum Foundation are enormous: from colleges to schools to orphanages to the constructions of mosques to drilling of water wells to supplying medical equipment. 


Actually, the list is unending!
