After 30 days of tiring and continuous work and by the end of the holy month Ramadan, we were able to finally end one of our mega projects ‘’RAMDAN2GO’’ for the 17th time in the row!
RAMADAN2GO is a joint project between Omega LEO Club & Alpha LEO Club of Alexandria Apollo in which we work in together as a one team, for 17years we have been providing charity bags -containing the essential food ingredients which a family can rely on for the rest of the Holy month-& hot meals for the needy people in the suburbs of Alexandria.
This year we were able to break our targets, reaching 40500 meals with an approximate of 1000 meals daily & 4500 charity bags, they were all delivered to more than 10 suburbs in Alexandria throughout the holy month. The total budget of the project reached an approximate of 1,900,000 Egyptian Pounds and this was all made possible with the generous donations that we had received from our supporters
For the first time in the project’s history we worked in 3 places in parallel this year, we had 2 kitchens where we prepared our meals in and the stock house where we prepared the charity bags. To be able to achieve our targets in the 3 places we worked in shifts in which we were divided – Omega LEO Club & Alpha LEO Club of Alexandria Apollo members- over the 3 places with more than 400 volunteers (Non LEO members) joining us in preparing the meals.
And For the meals to be delivered on time, we had to put a strategy to work with. The kitchen was divided into sections where each component of the meal was prepared in a separate section & before iftar – time for Muslims to break their fast- with two hours we do something that we call ‘’Stations’’ in which the components are gathered in one bag, and directly before iftar with one hour our members were always on the road for the meals to be delivered on time.
