Beit Al Khair Society has revealed its new Ramadan campaign, And He (Allah) nurtures charity, which starts on February 17, 2021, falling on the 5th of the lunar month of Rajab 1442H.
The annual drive, to continue for over three months till the end of Eid Al Fitr, is aimed to bring happiness to as many disadvantaged people nationwide, and meet their needs despite the COVID-19 global pandemic.
The timely campaign, themed And He (Allah) nurtures charity, comes amidst tough conditions that have engulfed the entire world because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) that spared no country.
Despite the crisis, Beit Al Khair managed to execute an outstanding Ramadan campaign last year during which the Society spent Dh92.1 million out of Dh100.4 million it spent to reduce the impact of COVID-19 on affected people.
Abdeen Taher Al Awadhi, Director General of Beit Al Khair Society, said they are all set with a variety of programmes to meet the beneficiaries needs and expectations.
The Society Ramadan campaigns would not have been a success without the incessant support of strategic partners, led by the Al Maktoum Foundation, Dubai Islamic Bank, and philanthropists who always support us during such hard times.
This Ramadan is coming along with good tidings and hope as the country has vaccinated large numbers of nationals and residents, he said. This shows that giving charity and zakat will be a big support for these sincere efforts, and help end this calamity that poses a serious threat to us all.
All of us have to back the government efforts by giving more for charity in support of affected and low-income people during these blessed days.
Eligible people will be able to get their Ramadan needs as per the amounts specified for each and every family and case, and based on their financial situation and number of family members.
