The Khalifa bin Zayed Humanitarian Foundation announced on Saturday that it has made agreements with over 600 Emirati families to prepare 1.7 million Iftar meals to be distributed among the poor during the month of Ramadan.
This is the sixth consecutive year the foundation is implementing the project of serving hot meals to help the poor and needy during the holy month.
The foundation said that it is an innovative initiative on the national level to task the Emirati families with the preparation of food, so they also get help as well as the opportunity to participate in the charity works. The foundation will announce the details of the Iftar Programme 2012 at a Press conference to be held on Monday.
