An Indian businessman has taken the lead from the manufacturing sector to back the GDN Media Ramadan community campaign, in partnership with the Bahrain Red Crescent Society (BRCS).
Arcal chairman Raj Damani and his wife Shubha yesterday generously donated three cartons of hygiene kits as part of the #HelpThem initiative to provide support for Syrian and Turkish earthquake victims, as well as struggling local families.
The couple, joined by son Yajur Damani and son-in-law Ahad Nishat, handed over the donation to GDN’s chief reporter Mohammed Al A’ali at their company’s headquarters in Askar.
“I think the best thing to donate in times of an emergency or disaster are hygiene kits, which is why we are making our humble contribution to this campaign,” said Mr Damani, who is also founding member of the Bahrain India Society.
“We all have to step up our efforts to support families in Syria and Türkiye to help them overcome this tragedy.
“Support has to be continuous and non-stop until people in both countries recover from the devastation.”
