One of Dubai’s largest Ramadan iftars, which saw more than 10,000 labourers receive special meals dispersed by 150 volunteers was only possible due to the support provided by the team at Al Qusais Police Station.
That is the message that was delivered by international private equity firm Berkeley Assets during an gratitude ceremony attended by senior representatives from Dubai Police and volunteers from the charitable event.
Omar Jackson, partner at Berkeley Assets, said: “This was a small way to say thank you to Brigadier Yousef Abdullah Salem Aladeedi, Major Nasser Abdulaziz Alkhaja, Lieutenant Jassim Mirza Alameri, First Corporal Abdullah Hassan Saeed Alhoseni, and all the officers at Al Qusais Station who assisted make our iftar for 10,000 labourers in the Sonapur district a resounding success.”
Dubai Police closed down a street and diverted traffic to allow volunteers serve up meal boxes to labourers on Laylatul-Qadr, one of the holiest nights of the year for Muslims.
“I’m so pleased of my team and everyone else who turned out to deliver the food on this special day,” said Omar Jackson, partner at Berkeley Assets, who planned the initiative. “We’re grateful to Dubai Police who gave us fantastic support to make it happen.”
