- The ready meals serve as a token of appreciation to around 1300 drivers for their tireless service to the community
- This year the hospital included Talabat drivers to share the Iftar in appreciation of their 24/7 services during Covid times
April 22, 2022 - Ras Al Khaimah, UAE: Reflecting the charitable spirit of the holy month of Ramadan, RAK Hospital gifted ready Iftar packages to around 1300 drivers in Ras Al Khaimah in a single day. The packages were distributed at the hospital premises where around 800 RTA taxi drivers and 500 Talabat drivers lined up to receive their Iftar. The initiative serves as a token of appreciation for these community helpers who often break their fast behind the wheel to ensure constant convenience for the society.
Thanking the drivers Dr Raza Siddiqui, Executive Director at RAK Hospital said: “Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we had to take a break from this annual commitment to the RAK drivers in the past two years. Today, we felt humbled and thankful to have resumed this and to show our appreciation once again for the drivers who work tirelessly, sometimes around the clock, to make commuting easier for us. This year, we also invited Talabat drivers to share the Iftar as a small token of thanks for their services during Covid times when they worked 24/7 on delivering our orders while we stayed safe in our homes.”
“Often, we take services such as ready services for granted, and Ramadan is great time to remind ourselves that we have much to be thankful for. Many of these drivers live without their families, and it's not only our duty to be kind towards them, but our responsibility to make their lives easy as they do for us,” added Dr Raza Siddiqui.
For over a decade, RAK Hospital has been serving the UAE residents with thoughtful, educative and informative programmes. The healthcare institution has been a forerunner in reaching out to community for active engagement and to create a happier environment.
