Woodlem sets example through ‘Ramadan charity drive’ during the holy month … reports Asian Lite News.
In line with the famous saying, ‘Wealth will not be decreased by charity and God enriches those who give in his cause,’ Woodlem Park School set out to help those in need this Ramadan.
Woodlem Park school joined the festive spirit of giving by distributing Ramadan food packets and goody bags to labourers who constructed their big campus in 120 days in Al Jurf, Ajman. The effort was also to highlight and be a part of vision and values laid out by Shiekh Zayed, during the ‘Year of Zayed’.
Everyone joined hands including the CEO, principal, teachers, students and administrative staff of Woodlem Park School to launch the ‘Ramadan Charity Drive’.
The School had organised Iftar party, collected used cloths as part of ‘Cloths for Compassion’ campaign and iftar kits were distributed to the supporting staff. There was also a thanks giving note signed by the entire students, the first of its kind in Ajman.
The distributed food box included water bottle, juice, yogurt, biryani and date packs which was collected by students from their pocket money. Furthermore, the food packets were packed by the students themselves for distribution.
“I thank students and their parents for being on the forefront to support such initiatives,” said Abdul Gafoor Thayyil, the School Principal and Dr Sheena Shukkur, the CEO who led the initiatives.
The students derived happiness through giving and shared their humbling experience of visiting the labour camp to the RJs of flowers FM and reporters from the media, also present in the labour camp.
The students drew inspiration from the quote, ‘Good deeds last forever, while worldly positions do not. The reputation of those who do good lasts forever, even after they pass away.’
Furthermore, the Woodlem Park School had also honoured the ‘Year of Zayed’ by lending helping hand to those in need. In their endeavour to inculcate the values of peace, happiness and caring and sharing, the staff, parents and students led a campaign to collect clothes and other utility items to bring a smile on the faces of the less privileged.
On 7th June, the Primary Section of Woodlem joined hands with the Al Ihsan Charity giving children an opportunity to realize that true happiness lies in giving. The program was a grand success and the whole school joined hands together in their ardent endeavour.
