Dubai-based community mall Mercato organised an Iftar gathering for orphan kids from Al Maktoum Charitable Organisation (Sawaed Al Khair). This is in line with the ‘Year of Zayed’ initiatives to celebrate the virtue of giving.
The Iftar gathering took place at More café in collaboration with Dubai Police and RCG media. The special event saw over 25 children, aged 4-14 years, enjoy a delicious meal and a fun evening. Additionally, at the event Sheikha Fatima Bint Hasher Dalmok Al Maktoum and Mercato generously gifted the children.
“It is one of the greatest challenges for children to be without their parents and through this Iftar event we wanted to show them that they still have a network of emotional and practical support and care,” said Sheikha Fatima. “Our objective is to put a smile on the faces of those in need, to simply make them feel part of our society.”
“It has been a pleasure to host such a memorable evening with the children at Mercato, it is our duty to give back to those in need and Mercato is proud to continue our partnership with Al Maktoum Charitable Organization (Sawaed Al Khair) in improving lives across the UAE,” adds Nisreen Boustani, PR & corporate communications manager of Mercato and Town Centre Jumeirah.
