SDO Director General Her Excellency Dr Aisha Bint Butti Bin Bishr, said: At Smart Dubai we draw inspiration from H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who once said: ‘True charity is making a difference.'
"With that in mind, we strive to always make a difference not only with what we give, but also how we give it, which reflects our passion for smart technology and our commitment to making Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world."
"Our initiatives not only encourage our users to donate, but also keep them up to date with the advancements taking place all around them as Dubai's smart transformation carries on."
