Department of Community Development Dedicates an Evening to Sharjah’s Senior Citizens

The Sharjah Department of Statistics and Community Development (DSCD) has expressed its delight in dedicating some of their charitable efforts during the holy month with the emirate’s older generation at an “Iftar with the elderly” they organised recently. This reflects the government's approach in instilling happiness among its citizens. It also furthers their commitment to promote a more active engagement of the elderly in their community – attributes akin to the spirit of Ramadan.  

Part of the numerous charitable events and activities DSCD has been rolling out throughout the Holy Month, the main purpose of this Iftar gathering was to create a vibrant atmosphere for interaction and cultural exchange between the present and older generations of Sharjah, and instill a sense of happiness in the UAE society.

Residents were seen reminiscing about how Ramadan was observed in their time and threw light on cultural shifts that have occurred in society since. The DSCD members enjoyed an insight into their past, and in turn engaged the elderly in several interesting games on topics of folklore, art and music.

The evening concluded on a high note with a distribution of valuable gifts and prizes.

The Department of Statistics and Community Development provides censuses, surveys and studies especially for the elderly, as well as other community groups whom receive generous care from His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council Ruler of Sharjah.
