Reflecting the essence of giving in the holy month, ‘The Great Ramadan Drive’ was held to help the community segment comprising bus and taxi drivers of the Road and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai.

To promote the values of giving, as well as to reinforce safe mobility throughout Ramadan, more than 2,000 iftar meal boxes were distributed at the RTA camps to drivers ending their fast.

The initiative was run in cooperation with the RTA and aligned to its continued efforts to enhance their commitment towards society. The distribution drive took place yesterday and will continue today. It is being held across camps in Al Muhaisnah, Jebel Ali and Al Quoz in Dubai.

This year's event saw the involvement of some of Dubai’s vibrant youth and car groups who support the RTA’s safe driving message.

The initiative stems from the RTA’s CSR goals and community drives that promote volunteering work and the act of giving, inspired by the vision of the nation's leaders who have inculcated the sense of social responsibility. The campaign is supported by Orbit Events and Promotions and Quick Surf Network in alliance with the RTA.

Brands and Corporations have joined to generously contribute, support and share blessings among the communities that serve Dubai. MaskEX, the world’s most secure and private cryptocurrency exchange, is the prime contributor to this year’s initiative. Founded in 2021, MaskEX is the owner of MSB financial licence in Canada and offers a licensed legal trading platform. It’s "Your Wallet, Your Way" tagline reflects its mission to play an essential role in a free economic system by providing the masses with financial anonymity and autonomy.

The drive has also garnered support from key partners like Legend Motors UAE, Al Ain Water, Nutridor Abevia, Del Monte Foods, Hotpack, MoneyKutz, Khaleej Times and UAE Mustang Knights Club.
