The Chairman of the Fujairah Welfare Association, Saeed Bin Mohammed Al Raqbani, revealed  that up-to 220 thousand impoverished people including orphans and poor families living in the emirate of Fujairah will benefit from the Association’s projects in the upcoming month of Ramadan.


The projects will include the distribution of the Ramadan Mir (allowance) and of zakat (charity) funds and provision of Iftar (breaking of fast) consisting of 5933 daily meals, as well as projects such as Zakat al-Fitr and Eid Gifts.


Al Raqbani made his comments after recently chairing a meeting of the Board of Directors of Fujairah Welfare Association which reviewed all projects for the holy month of Ramadan.

Al Raqbani said that the Association puts as its top priority the improvement of efficiency of all their programs, providing better services to disadvantaged families and increasing the number of families eligible for help.


He pointed out that this year’s project for Ramadan Mir saw a significant increase in the number of beneficiaries, compared to last year due to the increased number of eligible families, stating that the number reached 3350 households, numbering 24,850 individuals in various cities and areas of the Emirate of Fujairah. 

Al Raqbani added that the Iftar project is one of the most important projects in the month of Ramadan confirming the project will also be widened this year through the increasing of the number of tents and Iftar locations in areas of dense labor populations, offering 5933 daily meals.
