Dubai A Dubai-based Sikh welfare group is going all out to foster a sense of community during Ramadan by reaching out to thousands of Muslims in the UAE and India.

S.P. Singh Oberoi, President of the Welfare of Mankind, said the group is distributing thousands of packets of fruits and fruit juices at iftars being held in different parts of the city, besides supplying dry rations to workers and holding weekly blood donation camps.

“This is a small gesture from our end to give back to a country which has given us so much. The concept of sharing food and building a sense of community is also the basis of our langar (community kitchen) in the Sikh culture,” he said.
