In keeping with the spirit of Ramadan, DAHABSHIIL Group of Companies has once again this year dialed up to help with the yearly iftar initiative and with proffering much-needed help to refugees from Yemen living in Hargeisa.Through Dahabshil’s funds donations, Mosques across Hargeisa have distributed hundreds of thousands of iftar meals during the month of Ramadan.
An official who chooses to remain anonymous (in keeping with Islamic view of charities) from the Ministry of Religious Affairs added, “ In cooperation with Dahabshiil and the Imams of a couple dozen Mosques, we were able to offer iftar meals across Hargeisa during the holy month of Ramadan to help people break fast.”
On the other hand, Dahabshiil officials handed over a hefty sum of money to the Yemeni Refugee Committee to help ease the living conditions of people who fled the Yemeni conflict finding refuge in the city of Hargeisa
Bassam Ali Awad Abdulwahab, leading members of the Yemeni refugee caucus in Hargeisa, was beside himself with joy and appreciation when Dahabshiil management handed him a sum of money to help ease the strain of being a refugee in a foreign country, and especially at a time that Muslims were observing Ramadan fasting.“There are no words that we can express the very concrete, brotherly assistance that Dahabshiil has contributed to the Yemeni refugees here and elsewhere,” he said.
He cited, for examples, MV Dahab belonging to the company that is crossing the Gulf to and fro bringing a number of refugees aboard each time it touches shore on the Somaliland side. He also cited the Puntland contribution the companies made.
Dahabshiil’s heritage has built its base on a culture of philanthropy that rings true throughout the core of group.
Dahabshiil has a 40-year history of supporting communities around the world, and invests millions of dollars in community regeneration projects and charitable efforts across the 150 countries it operates.
