Last year, the Al Jisr Foundation carried out several Ramadan programs in Oman and abroad. Local programs included meat distribution in remote areas, and the provision of an Iftar tent in Seeb/Mabeila for the entire holy month of Ramadan catering for more than 600 people daily. Furthermore, the Al Jisr Foundation supported the (free charity) Ramadan exhibition for low income families, an event organized by the Oman Women Association at Seeb.
This year, the Al Jisr Foundation also expanded its Ramadan activities to the African continent, distributing Ramadan kits including cooking oil, flour, beans, meat, sugar and rice to more than 500 families in the Republic of Burundi. In parallel, Al Jisr carried out an educational program focused on hygiene, becoming self-dependent, building strong communities, and prayer (Salat).
The Al Jisr Foundation would like to thank all the volunteers who generously gave up their time to help us facilitate these programs this year, as well as our General Manager and staff for orchestrating the events. We warmly welcome new applications from volunteers for 2018.
