The Indian Community Relief Fund ( ICRF) has started its summer program, the ICRF Thirst-Quenchers, through which the group distributes bottled water and fruits to workers.
The initiative aims to raise awareness regarding the importance of drinking water and provide them with information on how to remain healthy during the summer. The ICRF initiative is currently in its fifth year and the group intends to continue this weekly event for the next 8 to 10 weeks at various worksites since these workers are highly affected when toiling through the summer heat. The first distribution was held at Charilaos Apostolides (Bahrain) WLL (CHAPO) worksite in Budaiya, supporting around 200 workers.
Additionally, ICRF volunteers have distributed face masks and anti-bacterial soaps, along with flyers that explain the measures that can be followed to stay safe during COVID-19.
