DEWA, Carrefour distribute iftar parcels at Dubai Airports


May 23, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

To celebrate the spirit of Ramadan, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Carrefour have launched an iftar initiative in cooperation with Dubai Airports. Volunteers from the three entities pack and distribute 1,500 parcels daily to passengers arriving at Terminals 1, 2 and 3 at Dubai International Airport as well as Al Maktoum International Airport. A total of 45,000 parcels are expected to be offered to travellers, each containing water, juice, dates and light snacks.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director & CEO of DEWA commended the volunteers for dedicating part of their time to voluntary work to achieve their happiness and the happiness of society in general.

“At DEWA, we are committed to consolidating social responsibility according to a clear strategy and a number of humanitarian and philanthropic initiatives to serve society and strengthen the cohesion of its members. We are also keen to consolidate the spirit of volunteering among staff and encourage them to participate in various initiatives and community and charity programmes within an integrated system of social work. We thank Dubai Airports and Carrefour for their efforts in this initiative, which consolidates the role of the UAE as an incubator for tolerance and charitable and volunteering work,” said Al Tayer.

“This may be Carrefour’s third year running the initiative, yet the expression on the faces of passengers after receiving a parcel is one that we will never tire of seeing. I’m proud of our colleagues for offering up their time to volunteer and look forward to creating great moments for travellers throughout the Holy Month,” added Hani Weiss, CEO, Majid Al Futtaim Retail.

“The Holy Month of Ramadan is all about the spirit of giving and we are very pleased to be part of this noble initiative. The initiative brings great convenience for our customers who are fasting and happen to arrive at the airport at the time of Iftar, while for many others it’s a great opportunity to experience local culture and hospitality and to learn about an occasion that is observed in many countries around the world,” concluded Paul Griffiths, CEO, Dubai Airports.

The iftar initiative exemplifies the shared vision of the three organisations in informing staff, travellers, and visitors about the importance of giving in the UAE society.
