Fridge philanthropy

June 14, 2018

EVERY year come Ramazan, Muslims fast and strive to give up bad habits and do good deeds. Individuals with generous hearts think about those poor people who are in dire need but whose self-respect stops them from asking for assistance. It is these unfortunate beings that one must look out for help.

A unique example is to be seen in Dubai during the holy month. People have installed fridges at public place that are stocked with juices, snacks, dates, water and other edibles at public place so that the needy can get whatever they need without asking.

We should emulate the example of these good Samaritans in our land, but one knows well what will probably happen here. A point to ponder!
