Ramadan Kareem.

Kindness lives on.
No matter how big or small, an act of kindness stays with us for a lifetime. Our actions are all connected to each other, and it’s our responsibility to create a lasting positive impact on people around us. For this Holy Month, let’s come together once again and make a difference.

FAQs


  • Are you holding any of the Ramadan volunteering activities in the other Emirates? 

    This year, we will be holding two volunteering activities in Ramadan: Packing and distributing. Packing essential food ingredients will take place in Ahdaaf Sports Club in Dubai. As for the distribution of these essential food ingredients, we will be focusing on distributing them in Dubai & Northern Emirates.

  • Are you providing any transport to the volunteers?

    If you are volunteering to pack the boxes, we are not providing any transport services. However, if you are confirmed for the distribution activity, we will provide transport from the Ahdaaf Sports Club to the distribution location and back to the Ahdaaf Sports Club. 

  • Am I required to volunteer for the full day? 

    No, you can volunteer for as many hours as you wish during the day. Please be mindful of the start and end time for each day. 

  • I have registered to volunteer. What now? 

    If you have registered for the box packing activity, you can show up at the Ahdaaf Sports Club on your selected dates. If you have registered for box distribution, you can only join this activity if you receive a confirmation email (this is due to the limited number of spaces available for volunteers for distribution) 

  • Do I need to print my confirmation email when I come to volunteer? 

    No, you don’t need to print your confirmation. Just show up at the Ahdaaf Sports Club and sign up at the registration desk. 

  • Can I volunteer with my team? 

    Yes, of course. We will require all the help we can.

    Yes, you can volunteer with children for the box packing activity. However, please be aware that there will be some heavy lifting involved. We do not recommend bringing young children along for the box distribution activity.

    You can wear anything that is comfortable and respectful of local norms and Ramadan values. 

  • What is the process for distributing the boxes? 

    If you have been selected for the box distribution activity (you should receive a confirmation email for this), we would request that you meet us at the Ahdaaf Sports Club where we will arrange a van to take all the volunteers to the distribution location. After distributing the boxes to the families at the location, we will return to Ahdaaf Sports Club. It is OK if you are not based in Dubai and wish to join us directly at the distribution location. In this case, we will share the exact distribution location coordinated with you via WhatsApp. 

  • I am in need of aid. How can I benefit from this project? 

    If you are in need of receiving the food boxes and are based in one of the distribution locations (Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, UAQ, RAK, Kalba) we suggest that you send an email to our charity partner – Tarahum Charity Foundation – at tarahum@eim.ae
