According to a top official, full meals, including high-quality food, natural juices and cups of cold water, will be distributed to workers under the project named ‘Mobile Suqia’.
Meals will be distributed to workers across Dubai from April 15 to December 31 daily as part of a charity event.
This move is part of a pioneer-ing charity project announced on Thursday by the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai on the side-lines of the Dubai International Humanitarian Aid and Develop-ment Conference and Exhibition 2015 (Dihad).
According to a top official, full meals, including high-quality food, natural juices and cups of cold water, will be distributed to workers under the project named ‘Mobile Suqia’.Dr Hamad Al Shaibani, direc-tor-general of the department, said the scheme targets over 700,000 workers who work out-doors across the emirate.“A three-month midday break is made compulsory for labourers who work outdoors during the summer months from June 15 un-til September 15. ”Ali Hassan Al Marzouqi, man-ager of zakat and charity bureau in the department, said they have launched two other charity proj-ects. “A specialised company has been contracted to supply some seven million cups of cold water to over 150 mosques in the emir-ate of Dubai.
”The venture, themed: ‘Mosque Suqia’, was a big success last year with around 2.5 million cups of water distributed to blue-collar workers in Dubai.
