Around 200 volunteers of Ghayath Volunteer Team took part in the initiative along with their children and members of the port Police Station. 

Director General of Dubai Customs commented:

These inherent values of giving and selflessness have been consolidated by the Founder of this nation, the Late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, May God Bless His Soul. Charity initiatives aim at strengthening ties between community members and spreading a culture of giving and benevolence.”

Dubai Customs launched 7 charity initiatives during Ramadan through which basic foodstuff items will be distributed to 2,000 families in need, in cooperation with authorized charities in the country.
