Community fasts are usually organized in churches and institutions and in charitable organizations in various parts of the country. Thousands of people, including expatriates, flock to these Iftar tents to break the fast. But officials say hundreds of people eating together could pose a major crisis during the Kovid era. Al-Muhairi said the decision was made in the interest of the health of the community and wished the holy month to pass safely.
He said those interested in providing financial assistance in connection with Iftar can contact charitable organizations and institutions operating with the approval of the department. At the same time, the director of the charity department, Mohammad Musabbih Dahi, said that arrangements have been made to make food and other necessities available free of cost during Ramadan. They will be delivered online through the Meals of Hope project. Customers will be able to place orders through Somato via the project’s digital platform. He also said that arrangements have been made for them to be provided with Iftar items at their accommodation.
