Fero is celebrating the Holy Month of Ramadan offering free transportation to foundations, charities & NGOs for the delivery of donations, gifts, food & clothes to camps and charity banks across the UAE.

A major pain point in charitable donations today is the high cost and severe lack of transportation facilities to ensure seamless deliveries - supply chain & logistics are incredibly complex, so it can be difficult to know how to support a good cause, let alone coordinate shipments to a sensitive setting.

Fero aims to ensure that this is no longer a worry for the many organisations that are actively putting an effort into contributing to the community. By taking care of the logistics, Fero will oversee the trucks, the drivers, distribution and the smooth transit of the donations to ensure its timely arrival.

“The initiative seeks to encourage organisations to give to the disadvantaged, to support the communities that we serve, and to make a difference by collectively participating for the growth of this nation,” the company said in a statement.

“The Year of Tolerance symbolises an effort in coming together by contributing to a communal culture - it has become imperative for companies and organisations to recognise their advantageous position and give back to the country they call home,” the statement added.

Naseer Ahmed, co-founder & chief strategy officer, Fero, said he hopes that members of the UAE community will take advantage of this, feel enabled to donate much more and said Fero will do its bit to ensure it reaches the maximum number of hands.

“Our greatest strength comes from the support given to us by the ecosystem we operate in and we would like to pay it forward by enabling Ramadan activities to reach more and more of the less fortunate without being limited by the cost of logistics,” he said.

“The authenticity and culture of the UAE community, as well as the deep roots of the virtue of charitable work throughout the country are synonymous with the values at the core of Fero’s fabrication,” he added.

If any foundation, NGO or charity are looking to move their donations during Ramadan, they can get in touch with Aakriti Dabas, business intelligence manager at Fero, via aakriti@fero.ai or +97143343344.
