Dubai: Under the directives of Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, 23,034 senior citizens, retirees, people of determination, and limited-income citizens have received the exclusive Esaad Card as part of the efforts of the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs to enable Dubai’s citizens to continue enjoying an environment of happiness and an outstanding quality of life.
Esaad Card provides a wide range of benefits across different sectors, including healthcare, education, hospitality, entertainment, real estate, restaurants and more, with exclusive offers and discounts available for cardholders across more than 7,200 companies and businesses in the UAE and throughout 92 countries worldwide.

Lieutenant General Abdullah Khalifa Al Marri, Commander-in-Chief of Dubai Police, said the directives of Sheikh Hamdan and the efforts of the Higher Committee for Development and Citizens Affairs reflect the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide all possible support to improve citizens’ lives and provide a decent lifestyle to all members of society through programmes and initiatives that promote happiness.
Ahmed Abdul Karim Julfar, Director-General, Community Development Authority, said that issuing the coveted cards to senior citizens, retirees, people of determination, and limited-income citizens reflects the level of social welfare in Dubai and the UAE.
