Posted 21 May 2019 · Add Comment

As part of its Ramadan campaign this year, Royal Jordanian (RJ), in partnership with Tkiyet Um Ali charity organisation, distributed food parcels to tens of families living in Madaba, who live under the poverty line.

 

RJ volunteering employees also visited the homes of needy families in Umm al-Rassass area, where poverty, lack of minimum services and deprivation prevail. Over the past week, some colleagues participated in preparing food parcels that, each, contained 24 food items that help a family get its nutritional requirements for one month.

Meanwhile, RJ organized an iftar at MacDonald’s for 70 visually impaired individuals in Zarqa, in which several RJ employees from different departments took part. Eid items of clothing were also distributed to the attendees.

Yesterday, RJ also sponsored one day of “Mawaed Al Rahman” iftar banquets, which Tkiyet Um Ali holds every Ramadan. This time, more than 2,000 individuals attended the iftar, where RJ volunteers served iftar meals to these beneficiaries.

Royal Jordanian’s Ramadan Campaign is a yearly ritual that includes many charity and goodwill activities that cater to the needs of many needy people, who live under difficult economic conditions. Among these initiatives this year, RJ sponsors 60 families all year round, providing food parcels to these families located in different parts of the kingdom

Next week, around 200 orphaned children will be hosted by RJ for an iftar banquet at the Children’s Museum-Jordan.
