Dubai: Dubai Municipality has launched a ‘Virtual Ramadan Tent’ as a digital socialising of its employees to replace physical meetings in Ramadan tents that gathered community members to talk about various social issues.

The Virtual Ramadan Tent, organised in line with the exceptional circumstances stemming from the coronavirus pandemic, is part of the commitment from the employees to the health directives, avoiding going out of the house, and instead using electronic channels to communicate.

Dawoud Al Hajri, Director-General, Dubai Municipality is keen to attend this electronic meeting with the CEOs and speak with the employees about community topics in a Ramadan social atmosphere.

The virtual weekly meeting aims to discuss various social and cultural issues, away from the working environment, such as the impact of social distancing, how each of us can protect our family and society, motivating to do good deeds during the month of fasting, interacting with the ‘10 Million Meals’ initiative and contributing effectively to UAE Food Bank initiatives.

A topic entitled ‘Dubai, city of the future’ will also be presented to talk about the future characteristics of Dubai at all levels, discuss the challenges and current conditions and how to find solutions that contribute to overcoming them.

The virtual meetings will continue to be held during the coming weeks of Ramadan.
