Following the devastating earthquake in Turkey and Syria, Mubadala Investment Company is offering tennis fans the opportunity to support the Emirates Red Crescent’s “Bridges of Good” humanitarian campaign.

The appeal is raising funds for disaster relief supplies in support of the UAE’s humanitarian efforts.

Mubadala Deputy Group CEO and Chief Corporate and Human Capital Officer Homaid Al Shimmari said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Turkey and Syria affected by this devasting earthquake. Aid, supplies and all forms of assistance are in urgent need, so it is vital that we do whatever we can to support humanitarian efforts at this time.”

Hosted in partnership with Abu Dhabi Sports Council and Mubadala, the WTA 500 event is bringing together the world’s top women players.
