August 1, 2013
The UAE summer can be unforgiving to those who have to work in the open. Fasting during this heat in Ramadan is particularly challenging for the Muslim workers on the Louvre Abu Dhabi construction site on Saadiyat island. 2,500 of the 4,000 workers who live at the Saadiyat Accommodation Village are from the Louvre Abu Dhabi construction site and 72% of them are fasting. A security supervisor shares his story with The National on how he overcomes these challenging conditions and the rewards he reaps from it.
