by | News

In the spirit of Eid and the celebration of the Year of Zayed, Dubai Outlet Mall, in partnership with Friends for Cancer Patients provided free Eid shopping to some of the cancer patients. The initiative, entitled “Joy of Eid – Making a Difference in this year of Zayed”, is a commemoration of the goodwill done by Sheikh Zayed for those in need.

The Friends for Cancer Patients group brought their patients to the mall to dine for Iftar, and shop for their brand new clothes, shoes, accessories and more to delight the children for the celebration of Eid. After the delicious Iftar meal and the free shopping spree at participating retailers, the kids had a fun-filled dress up event at a “Pop Up” feature at the Dubai Outlet Mall.

The Dubai Outlet Mall has a long running commitment to giving back to the society and extends its support to local communities in a variety of ways, the aim being to bring opportunities and positive experiences to good causes. The Joy of Eid campaign is part of Dubai Outlet Mall’s ongoing efforts and commitment to ensure a joyous Eid to the needy children of the country.

The initiative was supported by the following outlets: French Bakery, Chowking Orient Restaurant, Piero Pizza, Pasta & Grills, El Mondo Express, Curries and Grills, Noon-O-Kabab, Sacoor Outlet, Fashion For Less, Saucony Outlet, V Brand Gallery Outlet, Aster Pharmacy, Carter’s Outlet,U. S. Polo Outlet, The Happy Place Outlet, and Al Jaber Optical Outlet. Uber provided free transport to and from the retail outlet.

Iftar packages were also handed out to taxi drivers present at the mall during the time of sunset. The Mall wanted to show its appreciation of their hard work, recognising that many of them are very far away from their homes and loved ones which can be very tough during the Ramadan and Eid periods.
