Poverty

Little People Big Hearts

Main aim of the charity

To help those stuggling financially with supplying food and assistance in any way possible. The charity aims to look after those who cannot afford healthcare, legal care, schooling, food and other essentials.

How the employee got involved and why

Having lived in the UAE for many years I am well aware of the rich/poor divide. The labourers and worksers such as taxi drivers, security guards are sometimes treated very badly by their companies with awful living conditions and very low salaries. I want to just do a little bit to help when I can and realise that every little helps. Sometimes the charity puts me in touch with a specific family in need and I will take them shopping to fill their cupboards. Every little helps. I started helping soon after I moved here, having seen how tough it is for people here if they are not treated properls.

What work does the employee do for charity

I help with a charity called Little People Big Hearts which is based in Dubai. They look after workers in who have been abandoned by companies and have very littel income, food, clothing and other funds. They also help those who have suffered from Covid and are struggling. I contribute groceries monthly and help distribute these to some of the labour camps in Dubai. I also help with birthday party celebrations for those who cannot afford to celebrate.
