FedEx Express, a global express transportation company, and TNT recently celebrated the spirit of Ramadan by distributing Iftar food packs to less fortunate members of the community within the UAE.

In Dubai, FedEx Express participated in a food distribution initiative managed by SmartLife, a non-profit organization, under the supervision of Dubai Chamber of Commerce. A total of 500 food packs were distributed to workers in two labour accommodations in Sonapur. Each pack contained 5kg of food including flour, rice, sugar, tea, and more.

In Sharjah, TNT worked with Mission to Seafarers, anon-profit organization, to distribute food packs to seafarers. The food packs included essential food items, such as rice, lentils, oil, dates, and curry powder.

“With Ramadan representing a month of generosity, and 2017 the Year of Giving in the UAE, our commitment to support the communities in which we live and work provided a strong link to give comfort and support to those who work tirelessly in our community,” said David Ross, regional president of FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa.

“FedEx was founded as a people-first company, and this is a philosophy that we extend beyond our own team members at FedEx and TNT –we believe that delivering a positive impact is part of our responsibility towards the communities we live and work in.” – TradeArabia News Service
