Ras Al Khaimah - A police station and a culture centre in Ras Al Khaimah have been providing free Iftar meals daily to drivers and workers since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan.
The Maamura Police Station distributes 200 free Iftar meals to drivers and workers daily. It also takes efforts to promote traffic and security awareness among them.
Colonel Salem Al Zaabi, chief of the Maamura Police Station, said: "The move, assumed by all police stations across the emirate, is in line with the RAK Police social responsibility. The community police spares no effort to boost relationships with all members of the society."
Al Zaabi urged motorists to drive safely and cautiously during the holy month as recent accidents occurred due to speeding, mainly before Iftar.
The Qibaa Cultural & Islamic Sciences Centre, in collaboration with the RAK Police, distributes 500 free Iftar meals daily to poor workers across the emirate.
"About 13,000 Iftar meals have been distributed to the needy and low-income families since the beginning of the holy month of Ramadan this year," said Saleh Ahmed Al Shehi, chairman of the centre. Recently, the RAK Police ran an Iftar banquet for prisoners' families to help them ease their suffering during Ramadan. Colonel Ahmed Salem Al Saloomi, director of the Punitive and Correctional Institutions Department, said: "The 'Inmate Forum' is annually held to commemorate the auspicious occasion of the Zayed Humanitarian Day. The function coincided with the 11th death anniversary of the late Shaikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder of the nation."
Family members of inmates therefore got a chance to meet and share food in an intimate atmosphere.
