About US

Foundation (AMF) was formulated in 1997 under the royal patronage of His Highness Sheik Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum UAE’s Minister of Finance and Dubai Deputy Ruler as a humanitarian charity organization registered in the Irish Republic. In January 2000, HH Sheikh Hamdan directed AMF to move its headquarters to its newly opened Dubai office.
Being a UAE sponsored organization, AMF’s idea of charity and humanitarian is deeply rooted in the nation’s long heritage of aid and support to the needy. The country founders the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahayan and the late Sheikh Rashid Bin Saeed Al Maktoum, were pioneers in building bridges and opening doors for charity and educational work. Under their leadership, the UAE became one of the most active donors worldwide.
The UAE’s current leadership exampled in the President HH Sheikh Khalifah Bin Zayed Al Nahayan and the Vice President and Prime Minister HH Sheikh Muhammad Bin Rashid AL Maktoum, has continued the same policy and showed extended support
to the growing charity community of the UAE.
Therefore, it was natural for AMF to adopt the noble goal of consolidating its charity work across the world, in order to relief the poor and make sure humanitarian aid reaches all those who are desperately in need wherever they are.
