AJMAN, 23rd March, 2019 (WAM) — Ajman Police General Headquarters has launched a Tolerance Fund to help defaulting inmates and finance travel expenses of deportees to their home countries.
The initiative, a joint partnership between Ajman Police, Dar Al Ber Society and Emirates Vision Media Network, was rolled out during a press conference in a celebration of the Year of Tolerance 2019 and International Day of Happiness (20th March).
Major General Sultan Al Nuaimi, Commander-in-Chief of Ajman Police, said, ”The Tolerance Fund targets 1000 inmates of Punitive and Correctional Institutions who cannot afford to buy return tickets to their homeland and other inmates who defaulted on their debts, estimated at not more than AED15,000.” He explained that Ajman Police will provide information about inmates and process release procedures while the Dar Al Ber Society will raise funds for the initiative and Emirates Vision Media Network will broadcast a humanitarian case every week to collect donations.
Representatives from Dar Al Ber Society and Emirates Vision Media Network also spoke at the press conference about their contributions and roles in the initiative.
