AJMAN: Ajman Tourism Development Department (ATDD) announced yesterday that it distributed 3,242 ready-made Iftar meals to the needy throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan. The meal distribution marked the 28th anniversary of Ajman Museum, the most visited historical attraction in Ajman. ATDD’s month-long Ramadan Iftar initiative was sponsored by ATDD leaders and staff, as well as several local private hotels and entities, including Ajman Hotel; Fairmont Ajman; Ramada Hotel & Suites; BAHI Ajman Palace Hotel; and Ajman China Mall.

Commenting on the occasion, Saleh Mohammed Al Geziry, ATDD Director General said, “It was our privilege to invite the community together to celebrate two momentous occasions – the Holy Month of Ramadan and the birthday of one of Ajman’s most valued treasures.  Our culture is richly steeped in exceptional hospitality, and there is no greater way to demonstrate this, than by sharing our blessings with one and all, especially with those less fortunate, here in the midst of our beautiful Ajman Museum.”

The Ramadan Iftar initiative was part of ATDD’s corporate social responsibility strategy and aligns with the department’s efforts to support the ‘Year of Zayed’ which embraces the values of giving -  a value that is genuinely entrenched within the UAE culture, particularly during Ramadan.

“We truly appreciate our ATDD employees, sponsors and their employees, for maintaining the highest levels of professionalism and quality, at all times, especially during Ramadan. Our aim is to further strengthen our commitment and solidarity to our community through social initiatives that reflect our core value of spreading a culture of giving and benevolence, following the steps of our Founding Father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan,” added Al Geziry. Ajman Museum is the emirate’s foremost museum illustrating life as it once was. The 18th-century fort served as the ruler’s residence until 1970, before it was converted into a museum a decade later. The museum’s exhibits offer a compelling glimpse of Ajman’s past, from centuries-old manuscripts and weaponry to models of wooden dhows and ingenious irrigation systems. One of the most notable displays is an excavated cemetery discovered in the Al Muwaihat area, which features pottery and funeral jewelry dating back as far as 3000 BC. A section is devoted to the pearl trade that once dominated the region, while the fort itself is a perfect example of traditional Emirati architecture.
