Dubai Taxi delivers Iftar to 4800 drivers
(200 food baskets delivered to families of resident taxi drivers)
RTA’s Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC) launched two Ramadan initiatives targeting taxi drivers. This initiative reflects DTC’s appreciation of its taxi drivers working under exceptional circumstances caused by the outbreak of the coronavirus (Covid-19). The first initiative included distributing daily iftar meals to taxi drivers accommodated in Al Muhasinah, Jebel Ali and Al Quoz compounds, and the other involved distributing food baskets to families of resident taxi drivers.
“Dubai Taxi drivers are offered special welfare initiatives during the holy month of Ramadan each year. This time around, we have doubled the initiatives by offering to alleviate the challenging conditions witnessed by taxi drivers during the outbreak of Covid-19,” said Dr Yousef Al Ali, CEO of Dubai Taxi Corporation.
The package included the distribution of 4800 iftar meals every day to taxi drivers resident in Al Muhaisnah, Jebel Ali and Al Quoz. We have also provided 200 food baskets to resident families of taxi drivers. The move was coordinated with a host of external parties such as Dar Al Ber Society, Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department, Dubai Fishermen Association, Al Dobowi Tyres Company LLC.
“While delivering these two initiatives, DTC adopted stringent preventive measures to ensure a contactless delivery and safe physical distancing of individuals. DTC is keen to chart out proactive plans to tackle challenging conditions and keep up the level of services.
“DTC, therefore, rolls out such initiatives supporting the call of our leaders to maintain a high-performance level, and bring happiness to employees and clients. Such efforts are part of a strategy to promote the health prevention of community and realise DTC’s goal of making people happier,” concluded Al Ali.
