Dubai: Fast food chain Manoushe Street and the group, Volunteer in UAE, will jointly distribute 3,000 manakeesh meals in several labour accommodation sites in Al Qouz in line with the spirit of Ramadan.
Manoushe Street, a popular Middle Eastern eatery, as part of its Ramadan initiative has to date distributed more than 1,000 manakeesh meals across ten mosques in Dubai and will be distributing more than 3,000 meals to labourers in their accommodation in Al Qouz, said Jihad Al Eit, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Manoushe Street.
This initiative comes as part of the eatery’s ‘Like to help someone’ Facebook Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) campaign, which has received more than 3,600 likes.
Al Eit said their CSR campaign (www.facebook.com/ManousheStreet) aims to provide free manakeesh meals to selected mosques and labour accommodation across the UAE.
Volunteer in UAE, a group that acts as a conduit between volunteers and charitable causes has vouched support for the campaign and has committed to assist Manoushe Street in the distribution of the free meals. Al Eit said as the whole country celebrates Ramadan they were “happy to be able to provide free meals to our needy brothers for iftar.”
“We thank Volunteer in UAE for joining us and we are also very grateful to all who have liked our Facebook fan page for this campaign,” added Al Eit.
Lola Lopez, Founder of Volunteer in UAE, said: “It’s always great to see companies coming up with innovative ways to generate interest in the community into giving back to those less fortunate amongst us. Offering a product to disadvantaged persons in exchange for a like on their fan page is genius as it allows many members of the public to get involved.”
