Dubai-based Indian businessman NRI "Firoz Merchant" has once again showcased his commitment to philanthropy by donating Dh1 million to facilitate the release of more than 900 prisoners across jails in the UAE. Renowned for his benevolent efforts, Merchant spearheads the initiative to pay fines, ensuring the prisoners' freedom and reuniting them with their families just ahead of the Holy Month of Ramadan.

As the owner of Pure Gold in Dubai, Firoz Merchant has been actively involved in the welfare of pensioners through his 'The Forgotten Society' initiative, established in 2008. With a total donation of Dh25 million dedicated to prisoners' welfare, Merchant has played a crucial role in securing the release of over 20,000 prisoners since 2008, collaborating closely with police officials at central jails across the UAE. His support goes beyond settling debts and fines; he also provides air tickets to enable these individuals to return to their home countries.

Firoz Merchant's unwavering commitment to humanitarian causes continues to make a significant impact, offering a ray of hope to those in need and exemplifying the spirit of giving during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

Expressing gratitude for the collaborative efforts, he acknowledges the crucial support received from government officials in facilitating the release of prisoners.

With his philanthropic vision and ongoing initiatives, Firoz Merchant continues to be a beacon of hope for many, extending his gratitude to all those who contribute to the noble cause of prisoner rehabilitation.


Colonel Mohammed Yusuf Al-Matrooshi, Deputy Director of the General Administration of Punitive and Correctional Establishments in Ajman, expressed his admiration for Firoz Merchant's exceptional commitment to prisoner rehabilitation. In a statement, he remarked, "It is rare to see such commitment and concern towards the rehabilitation of prisoners by giving them a helping hand.
