Additionally, Dubai Customs will arrange religious lectures throughout Ramadan, further enriching the spiritual experience for residents.

A hallmark of Dubai Customs’ Ramadan events is its inclusivity, with activities tailored to benefit various segments of society. From distributing iftar meals to road users to extending support to elderly citizens in collaboration with Dhakar Club, the initiatives aim to promote dialogue and honor the invaluable contributions of community members.

Khalil Saqer bin Gharib, Director of Corporate Communication Department at Dubai Customs, emphasized the department’s strategic commitment to supporting community initiatives. With a remarkable track record of executing 175 initiatives over the past year, benefiting 238,000 individuals, Dubai Customs continues to lead by example in fostering a culture of benevolence and social responsibility.
