Ramadan | FilingTheBlues


Another great initiative from Moti Roti, and other local businesses plus a few of us bloggers during Ramadan. Please support FillingTheBlues if you can, it’s so rewarding to bring a smile to the faces of guys like this.

What is it?

Each night of Ramadan, we, the local startups and upstarts of Dubai, will aim to fill the bellies of the labourers toiling in the summer heat.

How does it work?

30 mins before Iftar, turn up to the construction site next to Media Rotana, Tecom, and help us set up. At Iftar time, just handout the food as the guys start clocking out.

How do I take part?

Volunteers: Just turn up any night. Bring whoever you like. You can also donate towards biryanis we will give to the guys on the nights we dont have a business sponsoring it. 10aed/meal or 1000aed/night (100 labourers). You can bring cash donations with you to one of the iftars or contact [email protected] for bank transfer details.

Local businesses: Fill out the form on the Moti Roti site, and select a free slot on the calendar when you would like to participate.
