The Spirit of Giving: Deutsche Bank Middle East Ramadan Initiative 2018

Celebrating the holy month of Ramadan, Deutsche Bank’s staff in the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Pakistan volunteered to spread the spirit of giving to over 3,500 people in need in labour camps, hospitals and homeless shelters.

Celebrating the holy month of Ramadan, Deutsche Bank’s staff in the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain and Pakistan volunteered to spread the spirit of giving to over 3,500 people in need in labour camps, hospitals and homeless shelters.

The initiative started on May 29th, as Deutsche Bank staff in Dubai and Abu Dhabi came together in their offices to assemble care packages to be handed-over to labour workers across the UAE. An impressive 800 packages were assembled in each location in a record time of under two hours.

On the next day, approximately 70 Deutsche Bank staff volunteers from the Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha, Manama, and Karachi offices met at the their building reception areas and travelled together to distribute the Iftar meals and packages to a total of 3,500 individuals. Meals and packages were distributed to:

  • 2,300 laborers at their accommodation camps across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Manama;
  • 850 patients and nurses at hospitals across Doha and Karachi; and
  • 400 homeless people at a shelter in Karachi.

Thomas Haag, General Manager of Deutsche Bank AG Abu Dhabi Branch said: ““On behalf of DB Abu Dhabi branch, I take great pleasure in informing that the 2018 Ramadan Iftar Event at Camp Amana, on Wednesday, 30 May 2018 was a successful one and appreciated by all. Hats off to the volunteering team for all their effort and thank you to our colleagues in DIFC for organizing the event and arranging for the hot meals for the camp workmen. I further take this opportunity to thank each and every staff of our AUH team for contributing in one way or the other towards making this event a success. Your effort has paid-off to spread the message of giving in the spirit of Ramadan.”

Supported by the Middle East Foundation, this is the fifth consecutive year that Deutsche Bank has organised an Iftar Meals and Care Package distribution initiative for people in need across the region.
