GE Volunteers and Adopt-a-Camp Spread the Spirit of the Season
Giving back is an important part of the holy month of Ramadan, and has always been an essential part of GE’s culture as well. That’s why in the spirit of the season, more than 50 GE volunteers joined the non-profit group Adopt-a-Camp (AAC) to raise funds and assemble over 1,000 care-packages for laborers within the UAE.
Adopt-a-Camp has been working with labor camps for seven years and currently has 43 camps and over 32,200 men under its wing. With each volunteering drive, AAC has made a real difference in the lives of thousands of laborers, their families and communities.
Each carefully made package included essentials laborers may require during this Holy Month. Packages contained everything from new mattresses, bed ware, food, and even toiletries. We are particularly proud of our team for donating $2,500 of their money to help in this important cause.
