People of all ages, in countries such as Algeria, Egypt and Mozambique, received food packs and vital meals during the Holy Month of Ramadan, after DP World established donation drives across their network.
Services provided by the Dubai-based terminal operator included the delivery of fast-breaking meals in Indonesia, which fed 200 orphans, as well as food for 6,000 underprivileged schoolchildren in Senegal.
In the UAE, DP World launched a Ramadan Iftar Programme, which offered 3,000 daily meals to workers, and iftars — an evening meal that a Muslim eats to break a daily Ramadan fast at sunset — to the elderly.
There were also Eid gifts given to the Dubai Foundation for Women & Children.
Commenting on the charity scheme, DP World Group Chairman and CEO, Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem stated: “We’re proud of the work of our people, to support local communities in countries where we operate.
“A country’s people are their most important asset and we’re committed to building vibrant, secure and resilient societies as part of our ongoing strategy to build sustainability into every aspect of our work.”
