MP Dr Mariam Al Dhaen has stepped forward to bring smiles to the faces of traumatised children and show her solidarity to GDN Media’s second annual holy month community campaign.
We have teamed up with Bahrain Red Crescent Society to help provide support for the victims of the recent earthquakes that destroyed parts of Syria and Türkiye, as well as struggling local families.
The big-hearted legislator has donated teddy bears hoping her caring touch will inspire others to support the initiative.
“Children need moments of comfort and cuddling a replacement teddy bear may provide them with a little solace. If we all rally round during Ramadan and support the appeal we can help make a difference.”
Gulf Daily News readers and online visitors have already started to offer support with supplies of bedding and toys. Toiletries, clothing and shoes would also be welcomed.
We are appealing to YOU to donate gifts during Ramadan to our offices at The Press in East Riffa, our commercial HQ on Exhibitions Road and the BRCS HQ in Manama.
Under the hashtag #HelpThem we need your support to collect brand new:
Clothes, shoes and accessories for men, women and children
Blankets and pillows
Your generous donations will help people whose lives were destroyed in a matter of seconds and minutes and give hope that rebuilding dignity and everyday life will be possible this Eid.
We can help BRCS to achieve so much by picking up some extra clothing, blankets, toothbrushes, sanitary products and toys, for example, when you’re next on a shopping trip. Our teams are ready and waiting to receive your big-hearted donations.
#HelpThem … please.
