Apart from Iftars, RCA is raising money for several other projects connected with Ramadan. Traditionally, during the three days of Eid at the end of the holy month, new clothes are gifted to the needy, especially children.

The gift clothes package is for both individuals and families who are unable to afford the celebration, both in the UAE and other Muslim countries.

By RCA calculations, the value of the Eid clothes package at home is Dh100 for an orphan child and Dh500 for the family, and Dh25 for an orphan and Dh200 for the family in other countries. Donations to the RCA can be made online at www.rcuae.ae or by calling toll free number 800-5222.
