The Fund has been set up by the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department as a response to the growing societal concern to contribute to the fight against Coronavirus.

The PCEO further pointed out that the Chamber developed the webpage to facilitate the participation of the private sector, and manage it in an easy and fast way, calling on the private sector to play its role in preserving the security and safety of all groups of society.
