Watani Volunteers Distribute Harees

Watani volunteers and Sharjah scouts distributed Harees plates to residents of Bin Tunaij and Bin Ketb communities in Al Dhaid.    Harees distribution is aims at reinforcing and highlighting UAE heritage and tradition of caring for the community during Ramadan. Harees is a traditional Khaleeji food.  

Federal National Council member Khalifa bin Hwaiden said “I thank Watani for its relentless efforts in preserving our heritage and culture among the community members, particularly youth.”  He said it is the responsibility of all UAE nationals to reinforce our national identity.  Bin Hwaiden joined the Watani volunteers and Saeed Al Kaabi from the Diners Club to distribute harees.   Al Kaabi said Harees distribution is a very old one and the program has taught us to help needy people during Ramadan.
