DUBAI, 19th May, 2022 (WAM) -- The Rental Disputes Centre (RDC), the judicial arm of Dubai Land Department (DLD), received a AED 1 million donation in two payments of AED 500,000 from Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB) for the benefit of RDC’s Yad Al Khair (Hand of Giving) Committee.
The donation aims to assist with humanitarian cases affected by rental lawsuits and relieve the distress of families who faced judicial rulings issued by RDC due to their inability to pay rent.
Judge Abdulqader Mousa, Director of RDC, and Judge Abdulaziz Anwahi, President of Yad Al Khair Committee at RDC, received the amount from the DIB. They expressed their appreciation of these humanitarian contributions, which express the solidarity and responsibility shown by institutions across the emirate towards society, thereby enhancing the sustainability of the initiatives supervised by RDC, including the Yad Al Khair Committee.
Judge Mousa commented, "This initiative affirms DIB’s commitment to promoting a culture of communal charitable and humanitarian work, and we will strive to develop cooperation among all partners from the public and private sectors to consolidate and support the leadership’s efforts and its wise directives in empowering this culture among society members."
For his part, Judge Anwahi noted that the RDC is setting up a system to determine the eligible humanitarian cases. As a prerequisite, the case owner must fill out a Yad Al Khair Committee form, which would include a report on the humanitarian situation, the Committee’s observations, and guidelines for the Committee to judge the situation. The case owner’s salary must also be noted to establish if they are among the categories being prioritised for this assistance as well as if they support a family, whether they are obligated to pay or have other properties or commercial licences. A case owner’s other debts unrelated to the rental payments must also be noted.
