Convoy to Feed 2014 benefits landfill site workers & scrap collectors this Ramadan in Dubai
Ramadan is a special time of year when Muslims around the world take a step back from their daily routines and focus on community, charity, fasting, and prayer. Once again, the awaited and blessed month of Ramadan is here to witness the magic of what transpires when people come together. Believing that ‘No act of kindness, no matter how small it is, is ever wasted', confident supporters to strengthen community spirits', SynergY youth led by a young high school student Simran Vedvyas, supported by Dubai Municipality, Waste Management Department carefully planned the Convoy to Feed 2014, starting with 250 food packages distribution to benefit the scrap collection labors and DM staff & labors working at Ghusais site with Iftaar Meals and food items like Biryani, biscuits, oatmeal cereals, tea, labaan and water this Ramadan. Some corporates like Choithrams, Shrey Sahej and Cosmo Advertising have also joined hands with SynergY to support, the initiative which endures to benefit 500 or more workers during this holy month. Simran Vedvyas the Founder of Synergy highlighted that- “It is easy to sit up and take notice. What is difficult is getting up and taking action. Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference. In a world where there is so much to be done, I felt strongly impressed that there is something for me to do and I feel opportune leading SynergY.” To ratify why landfill site was chosen for this distribution, Simran added- “I chose Dubai Municipality landfill sites because we planted several trees in the past at some of the landfills in UAE and understood how much of hard work these people do for us and this would be our way to express gratitude and share time with them during the holy month of Ramadan." Eng. Sadin Ismail Al Falasi, Head of Treatment Systems Unit from Waste Management Department and several other senior Dubai Municipality officials present during the Iftar meal distribution appreciated the initiative taken by SynergY for arranging the Iftaar meal for the labors who are working in harsh conditions in the Landfill area.
