Filed on May 21, 2020

Eid is just a few days away. Amid the lockdown situation, Eid celebrations are going to be a little different this year. You cannot visit the mosque to offer prayers or get together with your loved ones for a fun-filled celebration. But this pandemic shouldn't stop you from spreading happiness around like a ray of sunshine. As they say, where there is a will, there is a way. Doing charity is one of the important pillars of Islam. This Eid, you can do something special for the underprivileged or good Samaritans of our society who are working round the clock to ensure your safety from the COVID-19. The charitable donations and good deeds will make this Eid celebrations memorable for you along with other people as well.

Here is a list of simple ways to make this Eid Mubarak for the needy and corona warriors.

Prepare Eid Meal for the needy

There are so many underprivileged people, like daily wage labours or security guards who are going through a major financial crisis during the lockdown. You can prepare delicious meals and desserts at home or buy dates and fruits from the market and distribute among families affected by Covid-19 pandemic during Eid so that they don't stay hungry on this joyous occasion. Feeding hungry people is a noble deed that will give you immense happiness and satisfaction.

Contribute to NGO's

Many non-profit organisations in the UAE are providing meals and essentials for the needy on a regular basis. This Eid, you can provide financial aid to these non-profit organisations and help them use the money to take care of thousands of people affected by the pandemic. You can also contribute to government relief funds to ensure the supply of food items, masks, gloves, medicines, and protective equipment for the quarantined and vulnerable people.

Distribute Safety Products

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, humanity is facing the greatest crisis in centuries. You can distribute safety products like masks, gloves, sanitisers, and soaps to people who are hungry, tired, and penniless and are living on the streets. These essential supplies will help control the infectious disease and provide a safety net to the poorest citizens of the nation.

Deliver Eid-Mubarak Sweets to Medical Staff

Doctors, nurses, and medical staff members are the real heroes who are fighting endlessly against the deadly coronavirus. Risking their lives, they are tirelessly helping the infected people at hospitals and spreading awareness about the importance of taking preventive measures. As an extreme precaution to avoid infecting family members, doctors and nurses are not coming home after work. Extend Eid wishes to these heroes by delivering sweets and cakes to them at hospitals. You can order online cakes in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and other Emirates to deliver to a nearby hospital and tell the medical staff that they are always in your prayers.

Serve Beverages & Snacks to the Police officials

Policemen are the unsung heroes of our society. The work hard all day, all night long to ensure a safe life for ourselves. Whether it has been feeding hungry labourers or maintaining peace within the nation, the police officials are serving tirelessly since the day lockdown came into force. This Eid, thank the police and security officials for their huge contribution towards society. You can offer them water, juice, and snacks for refreshment while they toil under the sun all day long for your safety and security.

As they say, in tough times, goodness always finds its way, but never stop. This Eid, pray for this pandemic to end so that we can all go back to our normal lives. Also, make sure to wear mask and gloves when you go out to distribute food, sweets, and water among the needy and make this Eid special for everyone.
