UAE.-- /PRNewswire/ --Holborn Assets, a leading financial services organisation, has joined forces with Emirates Red Crescent in an effort to provide a wide range of school supplies for Syrian and Yemeni refugee children.   

Over the first week of September, Holborn Assets has been sourcing and funding hundreds of notepads, pens, pencils, art kits, calculators, school bags and more to provide children in Dubai, and those currently living within refugee settlements, with a range of academic equipment.

Holborn Assets has joined the initiative started by Dubai-based Venkatraman Krishnamoorthy, of Tamil Nadu, India, who collected a record-breaking 10,000+ kg of stationery for refugee children around the world.

Holborn was given the green light to support the cause by the Islamic Affairs & Charitable Activities Department. In addition to the Emirates Red Crescent, the school-supply drive is supported by Education4All, Dubai Chamber's Engage Dubai, IBPDubai and UAE Schools and Well-Wishers.

In the upcoming weeks, employees at Holborn will be further boosting this effort by taking part in various sports events as they look to secure sponsorship and raise funds for the Emirates Red Crescent.

Commenting on the activities, CEO of Holborn Assets, Bob Parker, said: "As announced by Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 2017 is the UAE's Year of Giving and our team is very excited to be involved in supporting such a worthy and timely cause. Holborn Assets is committed to expanding its community work in addition to raising awareness about the Red Crescent's wider goals - we also encouraged our clients and the public to drop off any school supplies directly to our office!

"Further to education essentials, a number of our financial advisors will soon be putting their sporting abilities to the test in efforts to raise cash donations for Red Crescent's extensive educational and humanitarian efforts.

"In the upcoming months, Holborn Assets will be championing a range of voluntary activities for these great causes in what promises to be a record-breaking year of charitable donations from the business as we look to support causes in the UAE and across the world and shall be sharing more news here very shortly!"

This collection was undertaken under the umbrella of Emirates Red Crescent - license No 581 of Islamic Affairs & Charitable Activities Department.
