AED 100,000 donated following charity cricket match
Dubai, UAE: Nium, a global payments and card issuance leader, and the UAE’s pioneering international money transfer and foreign exchange company, Al Fardan Exchange L.L.C., have raised AED 100,000 for the charity Dubai Cares.
The two companies, who have entered a strategic partnership that will enhance pay-out services for Al Fardan Exchange L.L.C. customers in key global markets, raised the money during a charity cricket match in Abu Dhabi. Adding some star power to the match were members of the UAE national cricket team, including the likes of Ahmed Raza, Zahoor Khan and Chirag Suri, who participated along with invited guests and partners.
“It was great to see two businesses, united in partnership and united in sport, playing a game we love to benefit Dubai Cares and its dedication to youth educational programming,” said Jeremiah Glodoveza, Global Head of Brand and Communications at Nium. We enjoyed the opportunity to join with Al Fardan Exchange for the love of cricket and for such an important cause, and we now look forward to a fruitful partnership well into the future.”
Welcoming the funds was Abdulla Al Shehhi, Chief Operating Officer of Dubai Cares, who was presented with a cheque following the match by Frederick Crosby, Chief Revenue Officer Nium, and Mohammed Al Fardan, Vice chairman, Al Fardan Exchange.
Mohammed Al Fardan, Vice Chairman of Al Fardan Exchange L.L.C., said: “We are delighted to be making this contribution to such an important cause, in partnership with Nium. We believe that this donation will be well received and touch the lives of many, making a positive social impact while ensuring inclusive and quality education for all and promoting lifelong learning through Dubai Cares’ valuable programmes.”
The event was hosted as part of a series of activities that will be implemented following Nium and the ICC’s sponsorship agreement announcement.
