Emaar’s community residents marked the spirit of sharing and caring during Ramadhan together with Emaar Community Management, jointly hosting an iftar for the service providers of Emaar’s integrated neighbourhoods.
Residents of The Springs, The Meadows, Emirates Hills, The Lakes and Hattan hosted the iftar, which is part of the #BuildingCommunities campaign by Emaar Properties with the goal of encouraging people to undertake random acts of kindness and make a positive difference during Ramadhan.
Emaar distributed #BuildingCommunities boxes as part of the campaign to complement the Year of Giving announced by UAE President HH Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for supporting less privileged communities through charitable initiatives.
Each box contained gift vouchers valued at AED100, and instructions on the charitable deed to be done, which could be anything from buying a stranger a present using the voucher or gifting it to a person in need. The vouchers are accepted at The Dubai Mall, Address Hotels + Resorts, Reel Cinemas as well as all other Emaar businesses.
Emaar is also highlighting the stories of people who have made a positive change through their charity initiatives. Through inspiring videos of their work, Emaar aims to engage people to positively impact the community for Ramadhan and beyond. The public can take part in this innovative social experiment by sharing their stories of kindness on Emaar’s social media channels under the #BuildingCommunities hashtag. Emaar will donate a cash prize of AED20,000 to the winner’s charity of choice.
