Beit Al Khair Society has started contributing free meals to low-income workers. By the end of August, the charity will have distributed 50,000 meals.
The gesture, which is in line with the declaration of 2017 as the Year of Giving, is meant to "ease the suffering of blue-collar workers and to support them in the sweltering summer temperature", according to a top official.
Abdeen Taher Al Awadhi, general manager of the charity, said the scheme is part of the 'Feeding Food' project they launched recently in collaboration with the Emirates Islamic Bank.
"Two special vehicles have been dedicated for the project to store and distribute foods to eligible people across the country," he said. "This important segment must be hailed for their exceptional work."
The 'Feeding Food' project is line with the deep-rooted Emirati values, he stressed. "Up to 5,000 free meals that include foods, cold juices and drinking water, are contributed every week at labour camps and construction sites."
