The Ramadan Ration initiative 1445 Hijri / 2024 organised by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) on 19 Ramadan benefited 2520 people. Commemorated annually as Zayed Humanitarian Day, it honours the legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, reflecting his profound commitment to aiding those in distress and supporting the underprivileged. It highlights the UAE’s deep-rooted values of generosity, philanthropy, and kindness, celebrating the spirit of giving and compassion that defines the nation.


This RTA’s humanitarian initiative is designed to support needy families across the emirate. It witnesses the distribution of 630 pre-loaded nol cards. Spearheaded by RTA’s leaders and Women’s Committee members, alongside 58 volunteers from within and beyond RTA, this campaign represents a collective effort of 116 hours of volunteering. Their commitment resulted in saving AED34,800 for RTA.


Participants in the Ramadan Ration initiative made site tours of several areas across the emirate. The initiative aims to assist limited-income families and offer them material and moral support through the distribution of nol cards usable in essential purchases at participating retail outlets. It also aims to uplift them morally by diffusing the culture of tolerance, mutual support, and active youth engagement in volunteerism to rally the community around the noble cause of supporting families in need during Ramadan. 

RTA is keen to mark this annual community-focused initiative by carrying out a host of community initiatives directed towards employees, People of Determination, families on limited incomes, drivers, and workers to bring them joy and happiness during the holy month of Ramadan.
