Give and Gain 2022 “Feed People this Ramadan” charity initiative organized in collaboration with Emirates Red Crescent
Rice Collection Drive aims to fight food insecurity and feed 5000 families
25th April, 2022; Dubai UAE: Upholding the spirit of giving during the holy month of Ramadan and spreading the #Bonlove, over 2000 little children and staff of British Orchard Nursery (BON) across UAE came together in full force to donate more than 1000 kgs of Rice for needy families, in association with Emirates Red Crescent.
British Orchard Nursery participated in ‘Feed people this Ramadan’ campaign as the institute supports the mission to fight food insecurity in line with UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. As part of its CSR vision, BON has adopted 3 goals i.e. quality education, good health and wellbeing and gender equality. The drive will run for the whole month aiming to feed 5000 families.
Dr. Vandana Gandhi, Founder and CEO of British Orchard Nursery, said, “We decided to support this initiative as food insecurity is one of the major issues we are facing today and it’s also among the top UN development goals. Rice is a basic staple and there are many families for whom it’s not available. Ramadan is the month that teaches us to share and we have always channeled our CSR initiatives in line with our CSR mission and values. Our goal is to align the staff and children of BON towards eliminating community issues and I am overwhelmed with the response received by families in just 2 days after announcing participation in this drive. It’s quite heartwarming to see these young children come forward enthusiastically and contribute to the cause.”
Adding further she said, “Such initiatives inculcate empathy in children towards those who are less fortunate. They understand the joy in giving and learn to appreciate the world around them at a young age. Children learn from the acts of elders; hence our teachers and staff always lead from the front by participating earnestly in any charity initiative that we organize. I am also grateful towards all parents who helped donate with full heart ensuring that families don’t go hungry and making a lasting impact this Ramadan with BON.”
