Dubai Customs carries out 19 social initiatives in Ramadan

Dubai, United Arab Emirates - May 29, 2019:    Dubai Customs carried out 19 social initiatives during the Holy Month of Ramadan that benefited more than 45,000 people. 

The initiatives varied to include donations, distribution of iftar meals among motorists and pedestrians, and organizing lectures.
As part of Al Furdah Hands initiative, 20,000 meals were handed out to motorists as they stopped at the traffic lights around sunset time. Around 200 volunteers of Ghayath Volunteer Team took part in the initiative along with their children and members of the port Police Station. Dubai Customs also distributed basic foodstuff items to 2,000 families in need, in cooperation with authorized charities in the country. 

Passengers arriving at the Dubai Airport were received with Ramadan snacks which reflects the welcoming and hospitable face of Dubai. There were also meals that went to mosques to help worshippers break their fasting. This initiative targeted 15,000 people. 

Awareness messages were sent across the social media channels during the Holy Month, and 550 meals were distributed daily to clients of Land Customs Centers and domestic workers. Another initiative saw Dubai Customs employees donate money to orphans.  

A number of initiatives have been organized for the employees including an Iftar event that included different departments, and a Suhur event that was organized by the Women’s Committee and targeted female government employees. “My Health, My Responsibility” is another initiative that aimed at raising health awareness among the employees and providing free medical checkups to 900 people. 

 “Dubai Customs organizes a number of charity initiatives as part of its commitment towards a better social cohesion and solidarity,” Khalil Saqer bin Gharib, Director of Corporate Communication Department said. “Year after year we add new initiatives and ideas to the list in order to reach out to more people and raise awareness around the importance of giving and selflessness. The UAE philanthropic activities seek to improve the lives of people in different parts of the world.”
