Give joy this Ramadan

Donations will be received at City Walk, The Beach, Boxpark, Last Exit Al Khawaneej, The Outlet Village, Al Seef and La Mer. A series of pop-up libraries, Hakawati storytelling sessions and ‘Smile’ photo booths will also bring the community together at select Meraas destinations.
The Meraas ‘Gift a Smile’ initiative is designed to encourage people to spread happiness and hope by donating books, toys and clothes during the Holy Month of Ramadan. The initiative is endorsed by the National Programme for Happiness and Positivity, and will support the work of humanitarian charity Beit Al Khair, who will also be collecting monetary contributions to support its Iftar outreach programme.
