Abu Dhabi, May 15 (IANS/WAM) The Abu Dhabi Fund for Development (ADFD) will provide a grant of 39.5 million dirhams (around $10 million) to the Al Noor Association for culture and development in Palestine.

The grant will help build a community centre that will provide educational services and hold cultural programmes, which will raise awareness in social, educational, health and cultural fields among the Palestinian people.

The ADFD involvement in Palestine goes back to 1999. The Fund has since then offered and managed three grants for projects in housing, education and social development sectors.

With this current grant, the total assistance provided to Palestine by ADFD on behalf of the Abu Dhabi government now amounts to more than 469 million dirhams (around $128 million).
