Dubai: Pakistan Association Dubai is carrying out a series of activities this Ramadan to help underprivileged community members through the holy month.
The activities range from supporting a thousand deserving families with food packages to arranging and distributing iftar packets weekly in labour accommodation clusters in collaboration with the Community Development Authority.
