It was undertaken under the umbrella of the Takatof Voluntary Social Program of the Emirates Foundation for Philanthropy.
Takatof has for years fostered the spirit of volunteerism among all age groups of society.
The Department of Public Health worked in collaboration with the Sakamkam School for Basic education in which the students were able to show their appreciation to labourers that serve the community.
The project, which has been running throughout the 2010-2011 academic year, has been entitled, “Your Welfare is Your Self-seeking.”
The project involved the distribution of more than 50 meals to labourers in Fujairah. The presentations were made at the Fujairah Corniche.
The students participating ranged from 8 to 10 and the purpose of the exercise was to instill within them a spirit of appreciation.
The students were reminded that such a gesture was in line with the Prophet Mohammed (Peace be upon him) who encouraged workers to persevere and tend to the service of society.
Representatives of the school thanked the men for the contribution that they make to the community life of Fujairah. In turn, the students were thanked for their service, by representatives of the Fujairah Municipality.
Engineer Mohammed Saif Afkham, the General Manager of the Fujairah Municipality, said that collaborating with the school in this project was important for highlighting the service role of the municipality.
The municipality will continue to work on a range of projects to extend the service dimension and offer appreciation to the many people who serve the society in Fujairah.
