A movement to raise awareness, support local businesses and individuals, and engage the wider community

The #PositiveChange campaign embodies these principles and is our way of bringing about real positive change to people’s lives during the uncertain times starting with the holy month, and inspiring others do to same. Through these initiatives, we hope to be a catalyst that inspires others to do good and embrace a spirit of gratitude within the community. On behalf of the entire Mashreq team, I wish everyone in the UAE the best of health and blessings this Ramadan.”
