Emaar and residents host Iftars for community workers to mark the spirit of giving

As part of the #BuildingCommunities campaign organised by Emaar, Emaar’s management along with community residents organised Iftars for its community workers and service providers to mark the spirit of service and sharing during the Holy Month of Ramadan.

The Iftars, held at Arabian Ranches and Emirates Living, were attended by representatives of all service providers that serve Emaar communities in Dubai. They were welcomed by Ahmad Al Matrooshi, Managing Director – Emaar Properties; Amit Jain, Chief Executive Officer – Emaar Dubai and Jeevan D’Mello, Chief Customer & Community Officer - Emaar Properties.

Residents signed up to donate laban, juices, breads and fruits, while families poured in as volunteers to serve and usher the community staff at the food stations. Homeowners and tenants, who were part of the initiative, said it was honour for them to volunteer and serve the people working to keep their community beautiful. The events were attended by over 1200 staff including security guards, lifeguards, MEP staff and cleaning staff.

At the events, Emaar also distributed #BuildingCommunities boxes as part of the community campaign organised by the company to complement the ‘Year of Giving’ announced by UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for supporting less privileged communities through charitable initiatives.

Encouraging people to undertake random acts of kindness and to make a positive difference in someone’s life during the Holy of Ramadan, #BuildingCommunities aims to foster community spirit.
