The Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF) has distributed bottled water, fruits and biscuits to around 250 workers as part of its Thirst Quenchers project this summer. This is the fifth distribution of refreshments as part of the initiative which was held at the Madinat Khalifa Health Centre project at Askar.
ICRF volunteers also distributed face masks and anti-bacterial soaps, along with flyers that explain the measures that can be followed to stay safe during COVID-19.
The activity aims to teach workers the importance of drinking water and encourage them to take measures to remain healthy during the summer. ICRF Thirst-Quenchers team intends to continue this weekly event until the end of August at various worksites since these workers are the most affected as they work in the summer heat.
ICRF Chairman Aruldas Thomas, ICRF Thirst Quenchers Convenor Sudheer Thirunilath, ICRF Volunteers Muralikrishnan, Pavithran Neeleswaram and M K Siraj were present at the latest distribution.
Prior to the most recent distribution, the ICRF Face Mask distribution team, under the coordination of Mr. Suresh Babu, distributed antibacterial soaps, reusable face masks and flyers to around 150 people in Isa Town area
