Emirati Relief Team Breaks Fast with Syrian Refugees

In a heartwarming gesture of solidarity, the Emirati Relief Team joined Syrian refugees for Iftar, the evening meal to break the daily fast during the holy month of Ramadan, at the Mrajeeb Al Fhood Camp in Jordan.

The act of sharing the Iftar meal signifies more than just breaking the fast; it's a time for community, reflection, and togetherness. This year, the Emirati Relief Team, led by Hassan Salem Al-Qaidi and Yousef Abdullah Al Harmoudi, aimed to bring a sense of normalcy and joy to the lives of refugees displaced from their homes.

The Iftar gathering was not just a one-time event. It follows the Emirates Red Crescent's (ERC) recent distribution of Ramadan essentials to 1,226 families within the camp and nearby areas. The food parcels, containing rice, sugar, flour, and other necessities, ensured families had the provisions they needed to observe Ramadan traditions.

The Iftar itself was a chance for the Emirati Relief Team and the refugees to connect on a personal level. Laughter and conversation filled the air as they shared stories and enjoyed the delicious meal together. The act of breaking bread, or in this case dates, fostered a sense of unity and understanding.

This act of compassion by the Emirati Relief Team extends a long history of humanitarian efforts by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) towards Syrian refugees. The UAE has been a leading donor in the region, providing critical aid for food, shelter, and healthcare. The Mrajeeb Al Fhood Camp itself is a testament to this commitment, established as a joint project between the UAE and Jordan to provide a safe haven for displaced families.

The Emirati Relief Team's participation in the Iftar serves as a powerful symbol of the UAE's unwavering commitment to supporting those in need. It is a reminder that during Ramadan, the spirit of generosity and empathy transcends borders and cultures. As the holy month progresses, the hope is that this act of kindness will inspire others to extend a helping hand to those less fortunate.
