Founded in 2011, the team’s 300 volunteers are dedicated to improving the living conditions of needy families in Yanqul. It operates under the umbrella of the Social Development Committee of the Ministry of Social Development.

Besides the Ma’awa initiative, this Ramadan Yanqul Charity Team has distributed iftar meals and given away 800 food baskets containing rice, honey, dates and vegetables. Additionally, Oman Charitable Organization has provided the team 800 purchase vouchers for distribution among needy families during the month, Alawi informed.
