She vowed to put the money to good use.
An Emirati woman has been sending money to four needy families and orphans every month – but this time, her Dh600 transfer won her Dh100,000 in a remittance centre’s promotion campaign.
Fatima Al Mazrouei never expected that her charity work will one day get her a prize, but as lady luck shone on her, she vowed to put the money to good use.
“I am very happy to receive the Dh100,000 cash prize. My joy was indescribable when it happened. The money will help me further provide needy families – especially the orphans – with educational support and care and improve their living standards,” she said.
Al Mazrouei was the first Emirati woman to bag a major prize in Al Ansari Exchange’s Mobile App promotional campaign. She won one of two grand prizes after using the app to transfer the amount of Dh600, qualifying her for the draw.
“I would like to thank Al Ansari Exchange for the prize and for providing its customers with an easy and flexible smart application. The app has enabled its customers like me to transfer and send money anywhere and anytime,” she said.
Though she has been remitting money via Al Ansari Exchange for more than 10 years now, she just started using the app six months ago.
Mohammad Bitar, deputy general manager of Al Ansari Exchange, said: “We are honoured that we are able to contribute to humanitarian endeavours by facilitating the money transfer for charitable work. Another chance to win Dh100,000 awaits one more lucky customer whose name will be revealed at the end of the campaign.”
