Nama Tuluveru members sat with the labourers to have the Iftar shared with them.
Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadan and is often done as a community, with people gathering to break their fast together. Iftar is taken right after Maghrib time, which is around sunset. Traditionally but not mandatory, three dates are eaten to break the fast in emulation of the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), who broke his fast in this manner. Many Muslims believe that feeding someone iftar as a form of charity is very rewarding and that such was practiced by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
Nama Tuluveru Members later announced that they will have this ‘Share and Care with our People’ Iftar distribution during the holy month of Ramadan every year with the Labourers residing in these areas. Members of Nama Tuluveru voluntarily came forward to contribute for this great event as a part of ‘Community Social Responsibility’ programme and concluded this programme with great fervor. Media personalities came in to witness the programme and cover this event in their web and TV medias.
