The events had been respectively held beneath the patronage of H H Sayyid Dr Adham bin Turki al Said and Mohammed bin Hamid al Masroori, member of State Council.
Eshraqa, the social improvement arm of Khimji Ramdas, supplied assistance to the events. H H Sayyid Dr Adham thanked the neighborhood for inviting him as a patron to the Izki occasion. He stated, “I am extremely pleased with the management of the event and I want to thank the volunteers and community members who pooled in all available resources and worked as a team to give fruition to this unique mass wedding event that offers young couples a bright start to their lives.”
Serving as a mentor at the Jalaan Bani Bu Hassan mass wedding, Sheikh Masroori congratulated the founders of the ‘Afaf wa Kafaf’ initiative on a productive occasion. He stated, “Mass weddings initiatives contribute greatly to reducing the expenses and supporting the youth in their endeavours to begin a family. We are thankful to Khimji Ramdas for their support towards a positive and more productive society.”
Nailesh Khimji, director, Khimji Ramdas, stated, “Our association with positive socio-economic events dates back many years due to our commitment to being a socially responsible company. We strongly believe in this on-going social inter-dependence initiative that not only improves and enriches life but also gives newly married couples a start on a debt-free life. “We are honoured to support these joyful events so as to share the happy moments with the members of the community.”
Dr Nasir bin Said al Masrori, common supervisor of Afaf wa Kfaf initiative, stated, “These types of initiatives play an important role in reducing the expenses of weddings that could turn out to be a burden for many people in our society. We thank Eshraqa for its never-ending support to our endeavours.”
Zaher bin Zahran al Sarmi, a single of the young beneficiaries from the mass wedding, stated that such weddings have tangible advantages. The initiative not only reduces costs but also encourages the youth to get married and construct their familial foundation.
He stated, “We are extremely grateful for the support extended to us by government and private organisations alike. Thanks to them, our families and we have enjoyed stress-free wedding festivities and are looking forward to our new lives.”
