(MENAFN- Khaleej Times) The RasAl Khaimah Charity Foundation has distributed 'Meer Ramadan' or foodstuff baskets, worth Dh162,000 to 1,160 vulnerable families.
Mohammed Jakkah Al Mansouri, secretary-general of the foundation, said they are keen to secure the food needs of poor and low-income families during the holy month of Ramadan. "The charity baskets, including flour, sugar, rice, oil, and other necessary foodstuff, ease the suffering of these families and fulfil their daily needs."
