Ramadan – The Month of Giving

June 29th, 2016

Iftar Food Packets

Giving always brings out the best in us. Throughout decades, we have looked for different opportunities to give back to the world. The month of Ramadan is one such opportunity. During this holy month, Muslims worldwide fast during the day and abstain from other pleasures. It is also a time when they contribute to charity and donations for the less fortunate.

Xpress Money H.O.P.E. has always believed in doing something positive for people during Ramadan. This year, we decided to distribute Iftar Food Packets to migrant workers in GCC and other countries.

During the Holy month of Ramadan, millions of migrant workers across the region work long hours during the day and by the time they get back to their labor camps, it’s almost time to break their fast. Due to a lack of time and options, most of them end up eating unhealthy or quick meals to break their fast. We wanted to change this and offer a more nutritious Iftar meal to them.

We joined hands with various government organizations like Community Development Authority (Government of Dubai), Ministry of Health and other organizations like TheHolyMonth.com and UAE Exchange, to distribute healthy and filling Iftar food packets. We got together and made these packets with food items like fruits, juices, chocolates and various savories and distributed them in different Emirates of the UAE.

We are also organizing similar drives in other countries such as Saudi Arabia, Pakistan and Bahrain. Xpress Money H.O.P.E. has been leading this initiative for the past three years and this time it has been bigger than ever. Throughout this Ramadan, we will be distributing over 10,000 Iftar food packets across different regions.

For Xpress Money H.O.P.E, working toward providing relief and support to people, is top priority. For this Iftar food packet distribution, we engaged our own employees to step up and be part of this initiative. Each and every food packet is packed, transported and distributed by Xpress Money staff. We feel blessed to have an opportunity to provide a good meal for people to break their fast. We are very thankful to all those who have collaborated with us for this great cause. It would have not been possible without their support.

There is truly no better feeling than doing something good for other people. It is our responsibility to seek other such opportunities to help people in any way that we can. Not just during the season of Ramadan, but throughout the year.
