The act of giving is highly treasured in the UAE and Ramadan enhances the giving spirit. Keeping the same spirit in my mind, Danube Group the UAE’s largest diversified conglomerate is offering 100,000 free iftar meals during Ramadan from last 13 years to the underprivileged labourers as part of its humanitarian initiative.
The yearly initiative has been a huge success among the blue-collar workers, whose hard work often goes unnoticed, despite their diligent performance of duties while adhering to religious obligations. Additionally to fulfil one of the five pillars of Islam the group offers an all-expense paid trip to a few lucky workers selected via lucky draw for Hajj and Umrah every year.
Mr Rizwan Sajan, Founder and Chairman Danube Group said:” This is one of many steps we take to recognize the unstinted services of the underprivileged labourers. We at Danube make sure food reaches in safe and hygienic condition to all who are coming for the iftars at different locations across GCC. Also, our team keeps a track on change of the menu on regular basis to cater to the taste buds of various nationalities.”
He further added:” We have been doing this every Ramadan for the last 13 years. The number of people coming is only increasing year by year. This initiative is in keeping with the spirit of the holy month of Ramadan.”
Danube Group is also known for its commitment towards the social responsibility. In November 2012 the group started Danube Welfare Center a non-profit social organization licensed by the UAE’s Community Development Authority, offering a plethora of free training courses to help unskilled workers improve their language skills and further develop their careers. There are many such initiatives taken by the group across various platforms to create a happier, healthier UAE.
