ERC launches ‘Ramadan Continuous Giving’ campaign


The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has announced that 1.8 million people inside the UAE and in 44 countries around the world will benefit from its Ramadan programmes this year.
The programmes include Iftar, Zakat al-Fitr, Eid clothing, Ramadan food parcels, and Iftar meals, at an initial cost of approximately AED37,606,500. The ERC has enhanced its Ramadan programmes this year to mitigate the effects of the prevailing humanitarian conditions in many countries.
The ERC launched its seasonal Ramadan campaign under the slogan “Ramadan… Continuous Giving” during a press conference held today at its headquarters in Abu Dhabi. The event was attended by Rashid Mubarak Al Mansouri, Secretary-General of ERC, Deputy Secretaries General, and partners. The aim of the campaign is to provide support and assistance to the categories and segments targeted by the ERC inside and outside the country. This year’s campaign is more comprehensive and in line with the quantitative and qualitative expansion witnessed by the ERC’s humanitarian programmes and charitable projects.
In his speech during the press conference, Rashid Al Mansouri, affirmed that the ERC’s programmes and activities inside and outside the country are witnessing a steady growth. He said that this is clearly evident from the size of the Ramadan campaign, which was launched today, targeting the support of donors and benefactors who are our support in alleviating suffering, improving life, and preserving human dignity. They are also our support in combating poverty, hunger, and diseases, and in strengthening the infrastructure of basic services in many countries.
