Dubai: With the help of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), the local Dawoodi Bohra community in Dubai has provided workers with free food parcels in their accommodation in Muhaisnah.

These efforts were to help during the current coronavirus pandemic which coincides with the Holy Month of Ramadan, which is traditionally a time of giving.

“No-one should go to bed hungry,’ is the underlying principle behind many initiatives of the Dawoodi Bohra Community under the guidance of Dr Syedna Aaliqadar Mufaddal Saifuddin, the 53rd spiritual head of the community worldwide,” read a release from the community on Saturday.

Community members distributed 5,500 meal packets to different accommodation camps– aligning to the principles of the community they belong and country they live in.

“Distribution of meals will be continued during the Holy Month of Ramadan,” added the release. “The local authority has arranged a huge distribution centre where the meals will be provided to the workers in their Muhaisnah accommodation.”
