(Wam) / 19 June 2012
The Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed Humanitarian Foundation has launched its Ramadan Iftar Project for this season, according to the Director-General of the UAE’s humanitarian major Mohammed Haji Khouri.
For the second year in a row, the Khalifa bin Zayed Humanitarian Foundation made agreements with more than 600 Emirati families to prepare 1.7 million Iftar meals to be given out to the poor during the month of Ramadan, Khouri said in a Press conference.
109 centres nationwide are ready to distribute the foundation’s meals with 21 centres in Abu Dhabi (363,000 meals by the end of Ramadan), 10 in Dubai and 10 in Sharjah, he noted. “The project further promotes humanitarian solidarity during the holy month and underscores the foundation’s mission statement and efforts to help underprivileged people sustain difficult living conditions,” he said. — Wam
“The foundation’s project also embodies the noble humanitarian values upheld by our religion (Islam) and the Emirati community.”
During last Ramadan, the foundation distributed 1.8 million people nationwide. Sponsors of the project spare no effort to support the initiative,” Khouri further said.
