DMI launches Ramadan activities
Dubai, September 12, 2009
Dubai Media Incorporated (DMI), a leading media and creative services group, has scheduled a number of activities through its corporate social responsibility department (CSR) to mark the Ramadan.
As part of its special activities for Ramadan, the CSR department at DMI has launched a competition for employees to memorise the ‘Sourat Yassin’ (Chapter of Yassin) from the Holy Quran.
Employees who successfully recite the entire chapter will be honoured at a special ceremony to be held after Ramadan.
A dedicated stand at the DMI headquarters has been installed in cooperation with the Emirati Red Crescent to facilitate donations by employees for charity. The CSR department has also placed a donation box for used clothes that can be offered to humanitarian organizations in the UAE.
In addition, a special Arabic-style multilingual library has been set up with booklets and leaflets of religious significance in several languages for the benefit of the employees and visitors.
“We have remained committed to maintaining the spirit of Ramadan every year and actively encourage our employees to contribute to humanitarian and charitable causes,” said Mariam Al Murr Bin Hareiz, CSR manager, DMI.
“This year, we have taken measures to facilitate even greater participation by our employees for social and community support activities, in addition to launching the competition to memorize parts of the Holy Quran,” she added.
“The multi-lingual library at DMI’s headquarters strongly reflects our keenness to work towards increasing awareness among the public on the importance of Ramadan.”
In its capacity as the main sponsor in the Dubai International Holy Quran Awards, DMI’s CSR department is additionally offering gifts to the audience through a raffle draw and serving Sohour meals daily.
The CSR department has also pledged to present a trophy and a valuable gift for ‘Highest Speed’ to the winner of each round at the Marmoom Ramadan Camel Festival.
A charity exhibition for children with special needs featured as one of the CSR department’s pilot projects has also been followed up with regular visits to charity centres and old age homes. – TradeArabia News Service
