Helping to Reduce Global Water Poverty
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Sunday, November 22nd 2015 [ME NewsWire]
Arzan Wealth (DIFC) Limited (‘Arzan Wealth’), a Dubai-based advisory firm regulated by the Dubai Financial Services Authority, is pleased to announce an exciting partnership with Water For People, to help permanently end the cycle of water and sanitation poverty around the world.
With programs in nine countries, Water For People brings together local entrepreneurs, community members and local governments to establish innovative, collaborative solutions that allow communities to build and maintain their own reliable safe water systems.
Inspired by the meaning of “Arzan”, which are the crater lakes on mountain tops that contain the source of life, “water”’ Arzan Wealth has established an annual employee contribution program whereby 1% of employee salaries are matched by a further 1% from the company and donated to Water For People.
Kelly Honecker, Business Development Manager at Water For People said: “We are grateful for Arzan Wealth’s partnership. Long-term commitments like this help us further our mission to ensure that everyone has lasting access to safe water and sanitation for generations to come.”
Muhannad Abulhasan, CEO of Arzan Wealth said: “In our search for water-focused philanthropic organizations, Water For People’s driving goal of empowering communities to create sustainable and locally maintained water and sanitation infrastructure resonated with our personal and corporate belief that all people have an obligation to protect and nurture the segments of global society that need support, and to help them become productive and impactful members of their own community and the world at large. We aim to grow and strengthen our partnership with Water For People in an effort to end global water poverty.”
