Suwaiq to host virtual iftar, spread awareness on volunteerism

20 Apr 2021 By MOHAMMED TAHA

To spread the spirit of Ramadan and culture of volunteerism, the Youth Committee of Suwaiq Sports Club will launch a virtual iftar initiative in the third week of the month.

Families will be invited to meet for iftar virtually from their homes with an aim to gather the largest number of people to discuss volunteer work issues, besides encouraging volunteerism among the people of Suwaiq.

Speaking to Muscat Daily, Ali al Sheyadi, head of the Youth Committee of the club, said, “Due to COVID-19, we are conducting our activities and programmes online. Virtual events require detailed planning.”

The committee decided to conduct its programmes virtually in order to maintain continuity of its activities, Sheyadi said. “I hope people participate in our efforts to encourage volunteerism while minimising the impact of the pandemic.”

The Youth Committee’s activities include a health workshop, titled ‘Our Fast: Health and Wellness’ held via Google Meet recently. The workshop discussed topics such as the health benefits of fasting, the significance of appropriate iftar and suhoor, overcoming dehydration, and sports during Ramadan.

“This month, the team will host religious, cultural, social and health lectures for the benefit of community members. The lectures are scheduled on Friday and Saturday every week,” Sheyadi informed.

Additionally, the committee organises beach cleanups, sports events and seminars for children.
