Ramadan Kareem from Dubai. Ramadan is regarded as the holiest month of the year in Islam as it was the month in which the Quran was revealed to Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) on the night of Laylat Al Qadr, one of the last ten nights of Ramadan.
The annual observance of Ramadan is considered one of the “Five Pillars of Islam”. Fasting from sunrise to sunset is believed to directs the heart away from distractions, with its purpose being to cleanse the soul by freeing it from impurities. Ramadan is also a time to practice self-discipline, sacrifice, and empathy for those less fortunate. It encourages generosity and charity.
This spirit of generosity and giving is that permeates Safari Kid Dubai this Ramadan. We have set up a Ramadan Sharing Fridge just outside the nursery gates that will be filled with portioned food donation in hopes of contributing to an iftar meal for the less fortunate around us. Our fridge is registered with the organization that stated the initiative. Over the next 30 days, parents, teachers, management, and the community at large will come together to fill our fridge with fresh fruit, vegetables, biscuits, juice, water, and drinking yogurt. As a daily activity, children in our Turbo Toddlers and Levels 1-2 groups will be sorting the donated items, packing portioned care packets in zip lock bags, and take turns filling the shelves of our fridge.
