With the starting of the Holy month of Ramadan, the spirit of helping needy people in the society has been gearing up with the launch of different types of charity campaigns.

In this regard, to embrace the spirit of giving during Ramadan, Mercato Mall will partner with Emirates Red Crescent to host a month-long charity donation campaign for those in need.

The charity donation campaign “Share Your Blessings This Ramadan” is an initiative to encourage shoppers to share their blessings with people in need during Ramadan by placing daily essentials and non-perishable food in our donation boxes, supported by Emirates Red Crescent.

This year dedicated donation boxes of toys will be placed in the donation area to encourage children to give back to other children in need and share the opportunity to have the joyful experiences that every child deserves. All donations will go to Emirates Red Crescent.

Furthermore, the Pop-up Markets showcasing the best homegrown labels by Emirati designers where shoppers can buy the latest Ramadan abayas and kaftans. While visitors can buy Ramadan inspired home décor, handmade jewellery and serving- sets all under one roof at the ARTE Market.

In recent months, Mercato welcomed new exciting stores including Toys R us, Adidas, La Nero, The Perfume Bar, Samurai Sushi, Uncle Deek and Slab. In addition, The Closet, ACE Hardware and Daima outlets opened their doors to excited shoppers, who are ready to experience their favourite stores all at the heart of Jumeirah.

Nisreen Boustani, PR and Corporate Communications Manager said that “we are excited to announced the month-long Ramadan support drive in collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent. The future holds many exciting opportunities for both malls and we look forward to continuing to bring the very best mix of retail, entertainment, and dining to our shopping malls for visitors from all over the world to enjoy.”

However, during the launch of its 2021 Ramadan Collection, the Pan Emirates Home Furnishings, has announced that month-long donation drive to support People of Determination with 1 per cent of all sale.

Mohammed Katawalla, Group Finance Director said: “Our special Ramadan collection offers UAE based interior designers a diverse option of latest trending Furniture and Home Accessories that are excellent in quality and unique in style. We have handpicked these products from across the world to introduce the latest trends ahead of trends to the market. Our customers will also get 30 to 70% Off on this exclusive range throughout Ramadan. And like every year, this year too, 1% of every purchase during Ramadan goes to Senses Residential and Day Care for Special Needs in Dubai, allowing our customers to be a part of a greater cause and do their bit of goodness for the society.”

Furthermore, the students of determination at Al Noor Rehabilitation & Welfare Association for People of Determination have been making a number of products throughout the year as part of their rehabilitation and learning of various skills in the centre.

As part of the Ramadan, the ‘Smiles n’ Stuff’ shop has been filled up with a number of products for patrons to purchase as part of Ramadan Gifts and support the children.

This Ramadan Gift included pocket-sized prayer beads specially handmade by the Students of Determination. Support a great cause this Holy Season of Ramadan.
