Through this initiative, we aim to spread the spirit of brotherhood and love, and share with all the joy of the holy month.” Al-Kindi added.
Abdullah Sultan bin Khadim, Executive Director of the Sharjah Charitable Society, said “The Iftar project part of the Ramadan campaign's is a significant undertaking that embodies social solidarity principles and fosters partnerships between the association and public and private institutions interested in participating. The Sharjah Taxi launched an initiative in collaboration with the association that showcases one of the fasting people's Iftar project programs. The association implements the program at over 144 locations throughout the emirate to provide breaking fast opportunities. The initiative emphasises the significance of charitable partnerships and encourages institutions to carry out their social responsibility.
