Two years ago, all it took was a Facebook group to spread happiness in the streets of Dubai. Ramadan/Sharing Fridges in the UAE started as a place for UAE citizens to help community workers and laborers to have access to free food and drinks during the month of Ramadan. One family shared a fridge full of food outside their home, and the month ended with 170 fridges of food across the streets of Dubai.
The project is a Dubai-based initiative, under the umbrella of the Emirates Red Crescent, where you can share soft drinks, fresh fruits, milk, vegetables, fruit juices, and dry foods. However, the initiative has no authorization yet to distribute cooked food. All you need to do is register a spare fridge, leave it outside your home, and the team will list it on its Google maps.
Each fridge is emptied and filled up to 20 times a day; it takes several donors to fill a fridge. It’s worth mentioning that they are open 24/7 so you can donate anytime.
