The Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Abuja has organised Iftar (breaking of fast) to over 3,000 people as part of its charitable and humanitarian programmes during the month of Ramadan.

The programme, which featured distribution of food, dates, clothing and financial assistance for their upkeep took place simultaneously at Islamic centres and mosques in and outside the nation’s capital.

The Embassy collaborated with Khalifa Bin Zayed AlNahyan Foundation for Humanitarian Deeds, the Red Crescent and the Sharjah Charitable Society to execute the programme.

The Ambassador, Mahmood Mohammed Mahmood Al-Mahmood, informed that all the items were distributed under the observation of the embassy at various centres since the commencement of the Holy month of Ramadan.

In addition, the Embassy organises iftar for internally displaced persons (IDPs) at various camps in the Federal Capital Territory.

When Daily Trust visited the IDP camp at Durumi, hordes of men, women and their children, were seen in long queues waiting to receive their Iftar packages and Eid Alfitr dressing.

Chairman of the camp, Ibrahim Ahmadu expressed gratitude to the sponsors and called on other well-meaning Nigerians to emulate them.

“Even before iftar time, the food are always ready. We appreciate their effort and may Allah reward them” he said.
