Celebrating its second Ramadan with the community this year, Doha Festival City took the initiative with Qatar Charity to distribute two thousand Iftar boxes from IKEA Restaurant. The Iftar boxes included water, dates, laban, sandwich and a fruit, and were distributed to taxi drivers and labour workers, last week.

The aim of the initiative was to help those who are fasting break their fast as most of them are still working during the Maghrib prayer. The initiative took place at the West Court 1 Entrance of the mall, with support from the Ministry of Interior Traffic Department to assist with the distribution by Al Shamal – Doha Highway.

Alexey Sitkin, Store Manager at IKEA Qatar said this is an incredibly important initiative and that they look forward to encouraging people to make room for change.

We want to help drive awareness to social responsibility, and it starts by supporting the people in need. We are excited to join hands with the Doha Festival City team and Qatar Charity in bringing generosity to others during this Holy Month of Ramadan.’

May Marzooq, Senior Marketing Manager of Doha Festival City Mall said they were thankful to Qatar Charity, IKEA and the Ministry of Interior Traffic Department for the support.
