Ramadan Iftar Camp 2016
The Middle East Chapter of WMO has lead by example and always from the front, when it comes to Serving Mankind.
The Ramadan Iftar Camp is an annual event on the Middle East Chapter Calendar. Thousands of Muslim brothers are provided a meal as they gather to break their fast at these camps.
These brothers are mostly poor migrant workers employed in the bustling Middle East construction industry. They toil laboriously throughout the day, without food and water, building skyscrapers that will soon adorn the Dubai skyline whilst religiously fasting under the hot desert sun.
Last year, one camp was organised and 37,500 meals were served through out the Holy month. This year two camps have been set up at Sonapur and Dubai Investment Park, 75,000 meals will be distributed during the 30 day tenure.
PepsiCo International has joined hands with the World Memon Organisation for the cause of the Ramadan Iftar Camp, in yet another example of a prestigious multinational endorsing and offering steadfast support to the Global Humanitarian Endeavours of WMO.
We bring to you live coverage by Mr Mahmood Shaikhani, one of the stalwarts of WMO Middle East Chapter. He talks about the Ramadan Iftar Camp, a project which he pioneered and is very close to his heart, introduces other distinguished members of WMO who have stood firmly with him in this worthy campaign to feed the fasting and cements the bond with PepsiCo International, taking this wonderful collaboration, one step further.
Next Stop, Ajmaan!
May Allah Swt accept our humble endeavours.
