Dubai Taxi distributes 12k Iftar meals in Ramadan



The Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC), Roads & Transport Authority (RTA), is distributing 12,000 Iftar meals during the holy month of Ramadan to cabdrivers and employees under an initiative run by DTC in collaboration with Dar Al Ber Society in the context of the charitable partnership between the two parties.

Commenting on this, Engineer Yousif Al Ali, CEO of DTC, said, “The initiative comes in implementation of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) inked recently between the DTC and Dar Al Ber Society where the latter caters to DTC’s Iftar project by providing 400 Iftar meals daily to cabbies and employees at Ramadan Tent at both DTC’s Head Office and Terminal 1 of the Dubai International Airport.”

“The Ramadan Tent is witnessing a daily flow of cabdrivers and employees, where a number of events, quizzes and religious lectures are also held in a bid to increase intercommunication, break the daily routine, and engage attendants into a social, cultural and religious atmosphere during the holy month of Ramadan,” said Al Ali.

“The DTC is also collaborating with Dar Al Ber Society during Ramadan to foster the spirit of cooperation and brotherhood among Muslims by hosting representatives from DTC in the hour-long Noor Dubai TV program designated for Dar Al Ber Society to talk about projects implemented and their importance to supporting charitable initiatives,” he added.

On his part, HE Hisham Ali Al Hashimi, Deputy Executive Director of Dar Al Ber Society, highlighted the ongoing joint charitable, humanitarian cooperation between the Dar Al Ber and DTC, as outlined in the MoU signed to bolster the bonds of charitable relations and support the resources of the Society’s projects. These laudable endeavours culminated in DTC’s contribution to building mosques, drilling wells, and participating in Dar Al Ber’s Iftar Project during Ramadan; one of the Society’s key projects covering mosques, residential districts and workers accommodations in the UAE.

Al Hashemi commended DTC’s initiative of providing 12,000 Iftar meals during the month of Ramadan, and its relentless efforts in supporting charitable activities as well as the entitled recipients of Iftar meals.  Under this project, Dar Al Ber Society distributes more than 16,000 Iftar meals daily in the emirates of Dubai, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Fujairah, and Umm Al Quwain i.e. over 470,000 meals during the entire month of Ramadan. He added that Dar Al Ber Society was dealing with the best kitchens and restaurants in the UAE, and called on the civil community organization to participate in the charitable and constructive projects of Dar Al Ber as part of its “Come on the Seeker of Goodness” campaign, which includes building mosques, drilling wells, and sponsoring orphans, poor & deprived families as well as providing Iftar meals, Eid clothing, money & Fitr Zakat, and supporting the printing of Al Ber Quran, among others.

He called for contribution to these projects by contacting the branches of the Society and “Abwab Al Khair” Program, which is sponsored by Dar Al Ber and presented daily on Noor Dubai TV & Radio Station Channel during the holy month of Ramadan. More info
