Dubai Police Launch Massive Iftar Food Drive During Ramadan
Dubai Police have launched a campaign called “Ramadan Al Khair” to provide iftar meals to 11,000 workers during the holy month of Ramadan.
The initiative, which aims to promote compassion, interdependence and solidarity through humanitarian action, also hopes to raise workers’ awareness of their rights and responsibilities and build good police-worker relationships by maintaining open channels of communication.
The campaign will be held in English and Urdu. The reason for choosing Urdu as one of the languages is that UAE is home to a large number of Pakistani workers who send billions of dollars in remittances to their country.
In addition, the program will also promote safety awareness among workers. Dubai Police have teamed up with Talabat, a food supplier, to distribute iftar meals.
Tatiana Rahal, Director General of Talabat UAE, praised the initiative, noting that it demonstrates the social and humanitarian role of Dubai Police and also highlights the UAE’s efforts to spread the spirit of charity and tolerance.
According to Captain Hamad Al Shamsi, who heads the labor rights department, the aim of the campaign is to raise workers’ awareness of their rights and how to communicate with the police. The chapter works throughout the year with various stakeholders to launch initiatives and programs and conducts field visits to that end, he noted.
The Ramadan Al Khair campaign demonstrates the UAE’s commitment to defending workers’ well-being while emphasizing the need for trust and communication between police and workers. Workers are asked to contact the 901 call center for information, feedback, and complaints.
