What is it?

 

Dubai’s homegrown restaurants team up together like The Avengers to provide iftar, for the whole of Ramadan to labourers working evening shifts.

More than providing iftar, the workers, residents, and local restaurants get to chill and spend time with each other.

 

VOLUNTEERS

 

Sign up using this link  –> Filling The Blues SIgn-Up Schedule This sheet is editable by the public and autosaves, no confirmation required

We are looking for people who can bring water, fruit, snacks, organise a queue, set up tables and hand out the food. Please check the sheet for which job suits you best.

CONTACT: Debbie zzroged@me.com

UPDATE: Wow what a crazy response, almost full and we barely started Ramadan! We have now added an extra section in the sheet called Bonus Volunteers, please see if you or your friends can help there too. We are also a little short on volunteers for the “Runner”roles, come on guys running to the local supermarket is not so bad lol.
