ABU DHABI -- In a move to provide the best services to retirees as a token of appreciation of the efforts they have made in serving the country throughout their working years, the Abu Dhabi Retirement Pensions and Benefits Fund has announced the launch of the Mazaya Programme for discounts.
Mazaya is an integrated social programme which offers discounts for pensioners and beneficiaries registered with the Abu Dhabi Pensions Fund, and aims to introduce the discounts and special services of the Mazaya Program to contribute towards maintaining their standard of living post retirement.
In addition, the programme aims to raise a sense of social responsibility for companies and institutions along with other sectors
in the Emirates, who could contribute to providing integrated and discounted service packages for pensioners. 5,600 pensioners
and 8,300 beneficiaries are expected to benefit from the programme.
The launch of Mazaya came about after the fund had contacted more than 150 companies to provide pensioners with integrated packages which would include all the services and features they need.
So far, the fund has succeeded in signing cooperation contracts with a large number of select companies and institutions in the private sector. The programme still looks forward to reaching a greater number of companies, to offer more discounts for a wide range of services or goods that interest pensioners.
Services and features covered by the Mazaya Programme are divided into several sectors, including sales, leasing and car insurance, telecommunications, flights, hotels, furniture, entertainment services, health care, beauty, restaurants, cafes, retail shops, jewellery, opticals, event management services and many others.
Speaking on the occasion, Fatima Al Shuraiqi, the Acting Corporate Communication Manager at ADRPBF, said, "We are pleased to announce the launch of the Mazaya Programme of Abu Dhabi Retirement Pensions and Benefits Fund. We believe this immense achievement in the UAE is a result of the pensioners' work and efforts. They were the source of strength and giving and today they are our source of experience and knowledge. Because their confidence in us and the homeland is priceless, we express our thanks and gratitude to them through the Mazaya Programme. We seek to cover all sectors through cooperation agreements with selected companies and service providers, to provide our pensioners with packages of integrated offers and features which will include all aspects of a good lifestyle."
Al Shuraiqi thanked the companies that contributed to the programme, including Etisalat, du, Etihad Airways, Al Hilal Takaful Insurance Company, Al Tayer Motors, Bin Hamouda, Audi, Hertz and Alshaya Projects Group. In the hotel sector, Al Shuraiqi thanked the entire Rotana Group, Jumeirah Group, Accor Group, Anantara Group, Starwood Group, Fairmont Group, Millennium Group and Al Diyar Group of hotels.
Al Shuariqi also invited the government agencies and large companies to contribute towards the Mazaya programme, either by offering discounts or through special services for pensioners, within their own customer service centres. -end-
