Default Du's Ramadan fundraising drive to
 help renovate homes of Emiratis

DUBAI -- Du has launched a fundraising campaign, 'Feekom Al Khair w Al Barakah' ('with your generosity and blessings'), the campaign encourages everybody living in the UAE to embrace the generous spirit of Ramadan by donating and doing their bit to help enhancing the lives of people.

Let's hope as part of the refurbishment they will get rid of those dreadful gold throne chairs.

Certainly there are many who don't live in palaces drapped in gold, but it's a relative poorness. None of them are living on the streets or going hungry.
