Imagine doing a good deed and being able to check off something big on your bucket list at the same time? Some would call it karma. That's exactly what happened when volunteers handing out Iftar boxes in Dubai at Maghreb (sunset) saw a familiar white G63 Mercedes with the number 'Dubai 1' license plate. The car is known to belonging to the Ruler of Dubai and Vice President of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, who stopped by for a friendly chat and a meal, reports The National.
In videos circulating on social media, Sheikh Mohammed greeted volunteers from his car and in his lap, is one of their Iftar packages.
The meals being distributed are part of a campaign called Ramadan Aman (Safe Ramadan), that aims to keep people from speeding at Iftar time to break their fast, by giving them meals on the road. The campaign is one of theinitiatives launched by Al Ihsan Charity Association, whose volunteers distribute the meals.
This is not the first time the Ramadan Aman campaign Iftar volunteers have received a high-profile guest. In 2016, Her Highness Shamma bint Sohail Faris Al Mazrui, the Minister of State for Youth Affairs, was one of the volunteers handing out food to surprised drivers.
It's all about the good deeds.
