Aldar Properties has signed an agreement to support the UAE’s COVID-19 frontline professionals.

The property group agreed the deal with the Frontline Heroes Office (FHO).

The FHO was set up in July 2020 following a decree by the President, His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

It operates under the direction of His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces.

The FHO supports a comprehensive range of frontline professionals, including medical and non-medical staff working in the health sector, such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, cleaning and services personnel, as well as protection and prevention workers, security, emergency and sanitization workers.

Aldar will provide a range of purchase and rent deals under the three-year agreement.

They include a six per cent refund on the purchase price once the final payment is settled and a four-year waiver of service charges.

In addition, the group will promote awareness initiatives across its properties including Yas Mall, World Trade Centre Abu Dhabi and Al Jimi Mall, as well as in several hotels and schools.

Aldar is also offering up to 30 per cent discounts for frontline workers in its hotels, golf resorts and food and beverage outlets.

Professor Maha Barakat, Director General of the Frontline Heroes Office, said, "We are pleased to be partnering with Aldar, to recognise and support the tireless efforts of our frontline professionals who protect and support the UAE community in times of need. We look forward to working closely with Aldar to drive the development of our support and recognition programmes to address the concerns of our frontline heroes."
