Few days ago, Baks also inked an agreement with a RAK hospitality holding company to support low-income people.
Baks supports up to 600 low-income families with monthly cash allowances, according to Al Awadhi.
According to a senior official, Baks has been one of the leading charity associations to initiate the charity drive 'school bag' for low-income families in 1993.
Abdeen Taher Al Awadhi, general manager at Baks, said the bag-based scheme was developed in 2003 to donate school coupons to students and give them more options to choose whatever items that best suit their age and grade.
These students are listed in Baks branches of Dubai, Ajman, and Ras Al Khaimah, along with the Al Maktoum Foundation Centres -- which are run by the society in Barsha, Hatta and Aweer.
Abdeen Taher Al Awadhi, general manager, Baks, said the UAE has been built on the values of giving, solidarity, fraternity and cooperation, without which the country would not have been the prosperous, secure and stable state it is today.
Awadhi told Khaleej Times that the Baks currently sponsors 1,967 orphans from all emirates.
The Baks spares no effort to make them all happy and meet their needs.
Urging people to donate to the Baks, Shakir said they can be reached on toll free number 80022554 or by e-mail at
