The new services serve to ensure a smooth experience for all categories of customers.

Digital Dubai has unveiled new charity services that will be available through the DubaiNow application, as part of its efforts to support charity work during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The new services make the process easier, smoother, and faster for users to support charity and humanitarian services on a comprehensive application that covers every aspect of everyday life, offering users more than 130 government and private sector services.

The new bundle consists of four services: Iftar Sa’im, One Billion Meals campaign, Zakat payment, and Zakat al-Fitr, the latter of which typically witnesses great turnout during the last days of the Holy Month of Ramadan. Furthermore, the application provides the Imsakiya service throughout the Holy Month, and features prayer times throughout the year, in addition to a variety of other services.

“This update to the DubaiNow application reflects our commitment to providing easy and quick services to all categories of customers, in line with the principle of a comprehensive and integrated government,” said His Excellency Wesam Lootah, CEO, Smart Dubai Government,Digital Dubai. “We operate with a clear vision that places people at the center of digital transformation, and to that end, service platforms must be designed to meet the expectations of all segments of the community, as per the emirate’s strategy to digitize every aspect of life, ensure the happiness and wellbeing of the Dubai community, and fulfil the directives of our wise leadership.”

“We are proud of the fact that charity work has always been at the core of Emirati heritage and culture, and with that in mind, we sought to make digital solutions available for users to do more charity,” H.E. added. “Digital Dubai sought to provide these services on the DubaiNow application given the platform’s simplicity and its role as a one-stop shop for reliable and safe Dubai services for millions of users across the UAE.”

With the Zakat on money service, DubaiNow users can calculate the amount of Zakat and pay it directly through the application, in collaboration with the Zakat Fund in Dubai. Meanwhile, the Iftar service enables users to donate a sum of money that will be used to provide meals to needy families, in partnership with the Dar Al Ber Society, who is working closely with Digital Dubai on a campaign to promote community participation in the service.

The application allows users to participate in the One Billion Meals initiative, where they can donate through the application and contribute to the largest initiative in the region, created to provide up to one billion meals for those in need in 50 countries around the world.

To avail any of the new services, the DubaiNow application is available for download on the Apple Store and Google Play.
