Expats in UAE to Benefit from Ramadan Package this Year

There are several notable holidays in the UAE, but perhaps the most widely-celebrated or observed is the holy month of Ramadan. Not only is this a time for Muslims to bond together as families, but it is also an opportunity for citizens to express their religious virtues in the form of charitable community activities.

And while many are planning as to how and where they would spend this Ramadan season for vacation, others focus on the spirit of the occasion and explore ways on how to extend its purpose, even to non-citizens and non-Muslims in the country.   Expats in UAE to Benefit from Ramadan Package this Year
