His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO, ENOC, said: “Our nation’s founding father, Sheikh Zayed, once said, “The woman is half of the society; any country which pursues development should not leave her in poverty or illiteracy. I am on the woman’s side.” We aim to empower women and help them in supporting their families, and thereby help build social cohesion and inclusion.”
As per the agreement, ENOC Group and CDA will lend the support to mothers who work hard and tirelessly for their families. CDA will identify the beneficiaries in line with its mission to extend government support to people who are eligible for financial and social benefits and help them integrate with the community.

Based on our insights, we work with various stakeholders to support underprivileged sections of the community. We are delighted to work with ENOC Group to support Emirati single women who face financial challenges.”
