Royal Jordanian (RJ) has renewed its partnership with Tkiyet Um Ali Charity, whereby the carrier will sponsor 60 families from among Tkiyet Um Ali beneficiaries all year round.
The airline will provide monthly food parcels for the families, which will be located in different parts of the country.
RJ has long implemented a number of charity initiatives, including a yearly campaign during the holy month of Ramadan which provides various services to the local community and poverty pockets in Jordan.
The renewed programme, inaugurated on May 5, saw several RJ employees participate in preparing food parcels in Tkiyet Um Ali warehouses in Qastal, near the airport. RJ employees will also participate in distributing the parcels to some underprivileged families from Madaba Governorate. Each parcel contains 24 food items that help a family get its nutritional requirements for one month.
In addition to this, RJ will sponsor one day of ‘Mawaed Al Rahman’ Iftar banquets, which Tkiyet Um Ali holds every Ramadan. This time, some 2,000 individuals are expected to attend the Iftar on the charity premises in Al Mahatta area/Amman. RJ volunteers will serve Iftar meals to these beneficiaries.
RJ will carry out several charitable activities in this holy month in cooperation with other charitable organisations, including hosting orphaned children for Iftars and providing Eid clothing to them.
