Ramadan 2021: How UAE's Dar Al Ber Society has been helping the helpless

For decades, many UAE residents have reached out to Dar Al Ber to donate or seek assistance.

Dar Al Ber Society (DABS), one of the first charities in the country, has been helping the helpless for decades now. Every Ramadan, it launches special campaigns to reach out to more people so that more people can benefit from generosity in the month of giving.

For decades, many UAE residents have reached out to Dar Al Ber to donate or seek assistance. The organisation was established in Dubai in 1979 as a charity, cultural and social firm, as per Ministerial Decree No. (23/78) issued by the Ministry of Social Affairs.

Dar Al Ber Society has undertaken many charitable projects in Arab and Islamic countries around the world. They are involved in building mosques and supervising them, digging wells, allocating endowments for charity, building orphanages, building schools and colleges to teach Muslim children, establishing Islamic libraries, facilitating Hajj and Umrah for the poor, and distributing Eid sacrificial meat to the needy.

Just before Ramadan, an affiliate body of Dar Al Ber Society— the Committee for Needy Families in Umm Al Quwain — launched the distribution of 15,300 food parcels to 1,600 needy families, as part of its annual Ramadan charity work.

Recently, Dar Al Ber Society pledged 20 million meals to the 100 Million Meals campaign launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to provide meals for the less fortunate in 30 countries.

The largest food campaign of its kind is organised by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), which will will work alongside the UN World Food Programme and other food banking networks, to deliver food parcels for underprivileged communities during the holy month of Ramadan.
