Dubai-based real estate developer Nakheel has teamed up with Dar Al Ber Society to bring a Ramadan donation scheme to Ibn Battuta Mall.
The company has set up giant boxes at Ibn Battuta’s China and Tunisia courts to encourage visitors to donate unwanted books, shoes, clothes and money during the holy month of Ramadan. The collected items will be distributed to people in need across the UAE.
Among the first people to take part in the event were Omar Khoory, director of Nakheel Malls and Hisham Al Zahrani, deputy director of Dar Al Ber Society’s social service sector, who donated books.
“Ramadan is a time for giving. We are proud to bring this initiative to our flagship mall, and hope our tenants and customers will join us in helping those less fortunate than ourselves,” says Khoory.
“We are delighted to work with Nakheel and Ibn Battuta Mall on this initiative, which supports our mission of helping people in need through humanitarian assistance,” adds Zahrani.
