Each basket weighs about 10 kg and includes essential foodstuffs that are traditionally in high demand during the Holy Month. They will be delivered to families who have been identified by the charities as needing extra support during the holy month.
Ahmed Al Janahi, Batelco Group General Manager Media & Government Relations, said:
“The majority of the baskets have already been distributed to the societies for onward delivery to those most in need in their communities.”
Al Janahi added, “The final deliveries will take place in the coming week, prior to the start of Ramadan.”
“We are delighted each year to make this contribution to the Bahraini community. It is without doubt a very worthwhile initiative that is highly appreciated by the charitable societies and needy families,” added Mr. Al Janahi.
