10000 meal boxes distributed to motorists by Dubai Customs during Ramadan

For two years in a row, efforts taken by Dubai Customs (DC) voluntarily continue throughout the holy month of Ramadan with the distribution of meals to motorists so they can break their fast during sunset and don't drive in Overspeed to reach home early. This is under the DC's yearly "Blessed Days" Campaign.

Around 2500 meals are being given out every week throughout Ramadan and 10000 meals in an entire month.

Ahmed Mahboob Musabih, Director General of Dubai Customs, CEO of Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation, Saud Hassan Ali Al Nusuf, Consul General of the Kingdom of Bahrain in Dubai, members of diplomatic missions, Colonel Dr Hassan Suhail Al Suwaidi, Director of Ports Police Station and Colonel Jumaa Salem bin Suwaidan, Acting Director of the General Directorate of Traffic at Dubai Police, partake in this movement by taking to the roads and distributing meals to drivers.

The “Al-Furdah Hands” initiative is under the Dubai Customs’ CSR efforts and their plans to increase their commitment to society. It is a part of one of a series of almost 14 community and humanitarian initiatives launched by Dubai Customs during Ramadan.

These initiatives also comprise the “Al-Meer Al Ramadani” (Food and primary needs giving) initiative, which targets nearly 3,000 needy families, and the “Customs Banquet”, which was committed to senior citizens.

Musabih said, “Taking part in these initiatives was encouraged by the teachings and wisdom of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan and reflects the humanitarian side of the UAE and its ethical values. It is also a chance to disperse a spirit of giving and welfare and promote voluntary work among our workers and within society. In 2021, we undertook 126 initiatives that targeted 76,500 people from various parts of society.”

The diplomatic missions, which took part in the charity activities, started the distribution of meals, which reflects social and national cohesion and embodies the real values of the selflessness of Emirati, including giving and generosity.
