Al Habtoor Group (AHG) Founding Chairman Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor has announced a slew of charitable activities and programmes during Ramadan, with the aim of spreading positivity and reflecting on the values of community and tolerance in a challenging period.
 
A renowned philanthropist businessman, Al Habtoor will provide daily iftar meals to workers residing in labour accommodations across Dubai.
 
To be organised and distributed in the restricted movement and quarantine areas by the Dubai Police force, the 45,000 meals are a special gesture to the thousands of men and women who work tirelessly and keep the emirate functioning smoothly even in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak, said the statement from AHG.
 
As the UAE and the world marks Ramadan during the Covid-19 pandemic, and public movements remain restricted during the 24-hour National Sterilisation Programme, Al Habtoor is focusing on ways to support families and the wider community through discount cards for the need, under the aegis of the Al Farooq Omar Bin Al Khattab Mosque & Center (AFMC), it stated.
 
Meer cards will be distributed to more than 150 Emirati individuals and families this year, enabling them to avail of free food and provision purchases at outlets through the prepaid cards.
 
These cards are set to bring the total relief provided to families over the last years to Dh1.7 million.
 
Al Habtoor said: "This year takes on special meaning as we rely on our faith, strength and God's direction to get through this challenging period."
 
"We will focus on our traditions of peace, understanding and tolerance this Ramadan, extending our help to the needy and our foreign workers who spare no effort in building and maintaining our beautiful country," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
