UAE-Based Expats Launch a New Initiative to Celebrate Workers This Ramadan
By Muhammed Aladdin
Pink Mango Project, a group of expats wanting to do good, are launching a new initiative this year, ‘Project Heroes’, in which they celebrate the unsung heroes of the UAE.
With the spirit of the holy month taking over, the group has decided to customize gift baskets filled with Ramadan essentials and give them to workers of different professions.
“People can have the chance to gift these baskets to workers and we will deliver them to various labor camps, at the original cost, and without extra charges,” said Rohit Sharma, the Founder of Pink Mango Project, which was launched three years ago. Today, the group has around twenty members.
“The project is a simple idea of a few young minds who have active disposable income and would like to contribute towards the happiness and well-being of society,” the 26-year-old continued in his statement to Khaleej Times.
Project Heroes is the 13th initiative of its kind organized by Pink Mango Project to celebrate workers, and this time, they have partnered up with Joi Gifts to bring happiness to the hearts of these heroes.
When asked about the purpose of the project, Sharma stated that the group wanted to share the spirit of Ramadan with those who do not know how to do so.
The project kicked off on Sunday and orders will be taken until the 4th of June, with prices ranging from AED 49 to AED 249.
“We had over 100 orders last year but we were late then. We hope this project draws in even more senders who want to celebrate the spirit of Ramadan,” he said.
This year, Pink Mango Volunteers are to customize each basket and deliver it personally to one of the many unsung heroes. Also, if the hero wants to, he or she could record a video message to the person who ordered them the gift.
