Minister praises Ramadan volunteers for upholding nation's values
Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak, the UAE's Minister of Tolerance, has paid tribute to volunteers supporting good causes during the holy month
The UAE's Minister of Tolerance has praised dedicated volunteers spreading goodwill during Ramadan for upholding the country's humanitarian values.
Sheikh Nahyan bin Mubarak hailed the efforts of people from all sections of society - Emiratis and expatriates alike - for celebrating the spirit of the holy month by helping others.
He paid tribute as ministry employees joined forces with members of the public to take part in the Feed and Reap initiative, in which 1,500 iftar meals were distributed to drivers travelling between Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
The scheme is organised with the support of Abu Dhabi Police, who are eager to slash the number of accidents that occur during the traditional iftar rush, when motorists pack the roads on their way home or to eateries to get sustenance.
