Supporting Dubai’s less fortunate community
As part of the Ramadan spirit, Aspen HealthCare had the chance to make a difference as a team and help people in need by taking part in the Sharing Fridges initiative, licensed under the patronage of the Emirates Red Crescent.
The initiative began in 2016 with the formation of a Facebook group encouraging people to set up fridges outside their homes and businesses. Today, it has more than 28,000 volunteers that are keeping around 170 fridges stocked throughout the Holy Month! The movement serves the less fortunate community workers and laborers with free food and drinks during Ramadan.
During 4 days, 5 cross-functional teams from the Dubai office, our very own ͞Fridge Fairies, filled up fridges with free food and drinks that anyone in need could help themselves to.
Thanks to their efforts and enthusiasm, more than 120 meals have been successfully distributed across Dubai, putting an immediate smile on all faces crossed!
Taking care of Dubai’s labourers
Dubai, one of the fastest growing cities in the world with its marvelous skyline, has a forest of modern buildings that are all built by an army of foreign labourers.
This Mandela Day, Aspen HealthCare wanted to honour these workers and visited a labour camp todistribute 150 meals to the men.
In addition, the team support them with donations of clothing, linen and other daily items that they need. No doubt this generosity brought huge smiles to the faces of these hard-working men.
