Before you attack us for our events being too Dubai-centric, hear us out. Maleha Arif (a Flea 4 Charity member) and Maitha Al Jasim are hosting “ACT for a cause” on August 26 at the Fujairah Tennis and Country Club.
Maleha, who lives in Fujairah, has been involved in several Dubai-based charity groups and wants to do something closer to home. She pitched the idea to friends and family, who then helped spread the word.
The event will kickstart with an Iftar buffet in at the Country Club and will be followed by a garage sale in the Ramadan tent. The Iftar is sponsored by Fujairah Media Group, who have been a tremendous amount of help in getting the word out.
Expect a plethora of items at the garage sale: bags, accessories, books, dvds, ornaments, lamps, frames, clothes, shoes, and lots more! All these items have been generously donated from all across the country. A presentation will also be given to attendees about the situation in East Africa and how they can help those and get involved.
All the money raised will be added to the funds raised by Flea 4 Charity and submitted to Red Crescent to fight famine in East Africa.
