DUBAI: In line with the spirit of tolerance, Etihad Credit Insurance (ECI), the UAE Federal Export Credit Company announced it will support Rashid Center for People of Determination by sponsoring the academic fees of one of its students.

We are honored to be a part of such a benevolent activity. By partaking in this compassionate initiative, we believe ECI can lend a hand to create a brighter and better future not only for the students of Rashid Centre For People of Determination but for the country at large.”
