The social and religious services sector pays close attention to statistical data in relation to its field. In relation to the social sector, the Emirate of Dubai worked hardly on the development and the rise of living standards as well as the improvement of life quality and the spread of social safety and security by building and providing social centers and family and childcare institutions, by encouraging cooperative actions in caring for people with special needs and including them into the society and in providing special attention to the aged people and the juveniles. In addition to that, social safety is evidenced in the encouragement of voluntary work through demonstrating the activities of non-profit societies and the social services that they provide. In relation to the religious sector, the services are evident by the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities, the building of Quran recitation schools and the supervision as well as the construction of mosques besides the organization of hajj services and providing permissions and authorization for mosque employees.
