Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home - Mother Teresa

We at UAE are called expatriates. An expatriate (sometimes shortened to expat) is a person temporarily or permanently residing in a country other than that of the person's upbringing.
Our upbringing with blessing of Hethai and Iyya, our parents have thought us the sense of family, values, religious beliefs and principles, ability to Love, shower affection, and willingness to help. All these values knit us very closely and we live like a family in a home called UAE.
Care Badaga is the first initiative in the direction of helping each other in the time of intricacy especially death of any registered member in UAE.

Care Badaga initiative is divided into two segments:

1) Care Badaga is an initiative keeping in mind the urgent requirement of cash for repatriation in case of death in UAE. DBA registered members and their immediate family members will be covered under this initiative. Immediate family members mean Father, Mother, Son, Daughter, Brother, Sister and only if they are on visit visa to UAE. Adults who are on resident visa they have to be a registered member to be covered under this initiative. A sum of AED 10,000/- will be paid to the family to cover up the immediate financial requirements which can help speedy repatriation

2) Second part is to provide financial help for registered member to travel back to India in case of death occurring to any of their immediate family members. This is a loan facility which is offered to the registered member. In case of a family traveling to India then DBA will provide AED 3000/- and in case of bachelor / spinster it will be AED 1500/- payable back in equal three monthly installment.

Query - How is the money generated for this initiative?

Answer - DBA members voluntary contribution is the main source of creating the corpus. Many members are regular contributor to this initiative. In some cases sports event winners have passed on the winning cash prize towards this noble initiative.

Query - If I am a member of DBA but have not contributed to this initiative, will I be covered?
Answer - All the registered member for that particular year will be covered, even if they have never made any contribution to Care Badaga. This is a voluntary exercise which will benefit all the members. (Year - January - December)

Query - How much should I pay?
Answer - Any amount is accepted. You can decide what an ideal contribution can be. Members have contributed in thousands and hundreds (AED).

Query - Whom should I hand over my contribution?
Answer - Please handover your contribution to any core committee member and just send a confirmation mail on the same. Or you can handover during any get together which is organized by DBA.

Query - What will be done with the money collected?
Answer - Money collected under Care Badaga Initiative will not be used for any other purposes.

Query - Should I contribute only once?
Answer - You can surely contribute more than once. There are few members who have promised to contribute to Care Badaga whenever their is any birthday celebration in the family. They have taken this as a reason to do service to the community.

Query - Is there any future plans to expand Care Badaga Initiative from only death to even hospitalization in UAE?
Answer - Yes. There are few plans in place but we need to achieve some lump sum amount to look into it. It will be decided by the Board and core committee members at appropriate time.

Query - Who is a registered member?
Answer - Registered member is an individual who has paid the yearly membership fee of DBA which is AED 100. This has to be paid before January 31st of every year.


Many of the members know that when one of our fellow badaga expired around a year back, we were not able to help through Care Badaga as he was not a registered member for that particular year.
