macartoThe online commerce platform for independent grocers and specialty food stores Mercato has announced its Ramadan initiative to support UAE communities during the Holy Month of Ramadan

The initiative is in partnership with Dubai Police with the aim of helping the communities to meet the challenge of COVID-19 pandemic more effectively.

This is in line with Mercato's corporate social responsibility in creating and distributing ‘Personal Safety’ kit – that include sanitiser solutions, gloves and masks. Under this solidarity initiative, 3000 packs have been supplied by Mercato to Dubai Police for their discretionary use. Police forces in Dubai are highly mobilised in this context, and in turn, some of the packs have been distributed to the Mercato and Town Centre Jumeriah visitors by Dubai Police personnel.

Nisreen Boustani, public relations and corporate communication manager at Mercato and Town Centre Jumeirah, said, “Mercato is pleased to partner with Dubai Police and support the communities by distributing safety kits containing personal protective equipment such as masks, and gloves as well as hand sanitizers to help protect members of the society.”
