Sharing the joy

The spirit of sacrifice, generosity and the desire to bring a smile on the faces of the less privileged came to the fore as the young children of British Orchard Nursery put together almost 200 Eid packages for labourers in Dubai.

The packages which were distributed to construction workers included calling cards for international dialling, caps to protect from the sun, hygiene products like shaving creams and deodorants, fruits, dates, water, juices and laban.

Labourers were particularly happy to receive calling cards which gives them a great opportunity to call their families back home on the occasion of Eid al Adha.
