As reported by Gulf News, a funeral service company in Al Foah is helping to make human remains repatriation less stressful for expats, as it concerns itself with dignified procedures for foreigners of all faiths.

The company, Al Foah Funeral Services, operates the very first licensed multi-religion crematorium in the United Arab Emirates. It promises expats to coordinate all elements needed for remains repatriation. The procedures involve the processing of complicated paperwork and organising special packaging needed for cremated remains.

The firm has recently signed an agreement with Etihad Airways to repatriate cremated remains and bodies globally. The partnership is the very first of its kind to move the remains of UAE expats — both non-Muslim and Muslim, said an official at the company.

The utmost respect and care is extended to the bereaved and the deceased, said the official. Family members and friends used to be responsible for organising the repatriation of loved ones, which involved immense stress during the mourning period. Over 2,500 human remains get repatriated yearly from Al Ain and Abu Dhabi.

Don Fox, CEO of Al Foah Funeral Services, says the firm is dedicated to offering the highest international care and service standards to all communities and faiths in the UAE.
