Investing in Others in Fujairah and the UAE

Often the idea is promoted that the UAE is a country that is focused on self-advancement and national promotion but there is a great story in The National about charity, humanitarian projects and investing in others, part of which has this Fujairah reference:

“Trekking for Nepal, which is based out of Fujairah, is another adventure-themed project dedicated to giving back in the UAE as well as abroad. Its founders, Mita Srinivasan, a marketing and PR director, and Carol Hyland, a graphic designer, support both the Welfare Association of Fujairah, a government-funded organisation that helps widows and their families prosper, as well as the New Youth Orphanage in Kathmandu, Nepal.”
