Karama Kanteen

The Karama Kanteen, in partnership with City Chef, is one of our most popular projects as volunteers get some hands on experience in our partner's catering kitchens and then get to go and meet the men they are feeding. Although this project is busiest during the Ramadan period, hot meals are offered throughout the year when funds are available if sponsors come forward!

Karama Kanteen Project

Volunteer in UAE established the operation of preparing, cooking and distributing food to labourers living in the Karama area in October 2008. In the first 6 months of operation, we provided over 45,000 meals to those who were hungry, on lower income frames or simply wished to receive a hot and healthy, home cooked meal.

We offered daily servings of rice and dhal which had been donated by companies or individuals, then cooked and distributed solely by our volunteers. The whole process has proved unquestionably worthwhile, with the achievements stemming purely from the volunteers’ willingness to help. Unfortunately, we had to pause this operation due to logistical and operational restrictions, and new regulations introduced by the Ministry of Health, and now we have partnered with City Chef Catering to support us in the preparation of food.

To date, we have served over 500,000 meals.

Moving forward, companies or individuals who wish to sponsor a handout can get in touch with us via email on info@volunteerinuae.com and let us know what their budget is. We will then source a couple of camps and suggest a few menu options to choose from. The sponsor can then make a choice as to which camp/menu they want to go with and we will arrange the rest.

If you're interested in volunteering on the cooking or distributing side, please register on this website and keep checking the Event Listings page for updates!
