HADEF & PARTNERS TEAM EMBARK ON A JOURNEY BACK TO REFUGEE CAMPS IN JORDAN

A team from leading UAE law firm, Hadef & Partners, has embarked on another trip to help support refugee camps in Jordan this Ramadan. This is something that is rapidly becoming a programme of continued support.
 
Last year, 2 of the firm’s employees decided to embark on a journey to two of the poorest refugee camps in Jordan and sought support from their families and the wider Hadef Family.  Such was the response to their charitable conviction that they raised AED 65,000 to help Palestinian and Syrian refugees.  These refugees were, and still are, in desperate need of food, medical supplies and education facilities. Our team was able to take supplies directly to planned recipients, whilst covering their own travel and subsistence costs personally. This year they are hoping to do more...
 
Access to sufficient food is a major issue in refugee camps across the world, so the team has been assessing how they can make best use of the funds they have raised to feed people during Ramadan. Mahmoud Awad, Senior Associate at the firm commented: “It’s our chance to really make a difference and contribute to rebuilding communities. For as little as AED 150, we will be able to provide a family with a food basket containing rice, oil, milk, jam, flour, and canned foods that can last for 3 to 4 weeks. We are also working to supply the refugee camps with incubators, wheelchairs, medication and college funds.”
 
With the aim of feeding 2,000 families this Ramadan, Abdulrahman Juma and Mahmoud Awad have embarked on a mission to Mafraq and Jaresh this week together with another colleague Karim Mahmoud. Abdulrahman Juma, Partner and Deputy Head of the Dispute Resolution team in Dubai, said “It is very important to all at Hadef & Partners to assist those who are less fortunate than ourselves in any way that we can, especially during the holy month of Ramadan. Our trip last year was very successful and we have decided to undertake two visits this summer to help make a difference to families in need. Our mission is simple – to place all charitable contributions in the hands of displaced refugees.” The team has already booked a further visit in August 2014.
 
Richard Briggs, Executive Partner said “We are proud of our people. The personnel at Hadef & Partners have been extremely supportive of the team’s endeavours and we aim to play our part and continue to assist in some of the Middle East’s poorest areas.”
