One of the UAE’s leading shopping-mall pioneers, Majid Al Futtaim, has teamed up with the Emirati singer Fayez Al Saeed to launch a Ramadan charity campaign.

Beginning on the first day of the Holy Month (approximately Saturday, June 28), Make a Difference This Ramadan is a new campaign launching across all of Majid Al Futtaim’s 13 shopping malls in the region.

Shoppers are encouraged to donate and drop essential items, such as clothing, books, reading glasses and mobile phones, in specially marked bins; the Red Crescent will then distribute the items through its networks.

“The Holy Month of Ramadan is a time to embrace the ideals of giving and charity, and I am pleased to lend my support in driving forward Majid Al Futtaim’s Make a Difference this Ramadan charity campaign this year,” said Al Saeed.

“This is a meaningful campaign that has benefited many families in the UAE, and through our collective efforts I hope we can encourage even greater numbers of residents, of all ages and backgrounds, to give back to the community.”
