Individual Iftar meals preferred over group feasts
KUWAIT CITY, April 4: With the start of the month of Ramadan, charity and philanthropic organisations have been heading to many places with a high population density of expatriate workers in various parts of Kuwait in order to distribute Iftar meals, reports Al-Rai daily. These organizations are following the same custom of distributing meals to workers that they had followed and gained experience during the COVID-19 pandemic for two years.
This is the third year that these organisations are continuing with this practice. It seems that the trend of organising meal tables next to mosques and in squares disappeared during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the strict requirements for organizing such tables in mosques, charity organizations continued to distribute individual meals to fasting people in areas with a high density of workers.
The daily monitored the distribution of Iftar meals by a number of charitable societies to fasting people in Mahboula, Mangaf, Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, Kuwait City and other areas. The number of workers was higher than the number of meals distributed. A number of meal distribution supervisors affirmed that distributing individual meals is more preserving of grace than placing them in group feasts. They said, “Some workers work during Iftar time and keep aside their meal so that they can eat it after they finish their work. Others eat what is sufficient for them at that time and keep aside the rest to eat during Suhoor. Thus, the blessing is not wasted, and we guarantee that most of it will be consumed by deserving people.”
