Al Jalila Foundation, a member of the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, announced that it has raised AED300 million to establish the Hamdan Bin Rashid Cancer Charity Hospital, the UAE’s first charity hospital that seeks to help cancer patients in need.

Raised in less than three months, the new total brings the Foundation another step closer to reaching its AED750 million fundraising target.

Spanning 50,000 square metres, the Al Jalila Foundation’s new 250-bed hospital will be built in two phases and will have a capacity to treat 30,000 patients per year. The first phase of the hospital is set to open at the end of 2023 and will include 150 beds equipped with cutting-edge technology.

"The development of the Hamdan Bin Rashid Cancer Charity Hospital stems from our vision to provide truly inclusive healthcare services and the high priority we place on the wellbeing of the UAE’s citizens and residents. The Hospital is set to become a leader in cancer care, and we are immensely grateful to the philanthropic community for their contributions, which are helping us in realising our objective of making quality healthcare accessible to the most vulnerable in society," said H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of Al Jalila Foundation.
