ENOC Group is also distributing iftar boxes at traffic signals in partnership with Al Ihsan Charity Association, and date boxes at retail sites in partnership with Alokozay. Other community initiatives include the Group encouraging employees to donate old, used, and new clothes to support the underprivileged through ‘Malabes’, and Emirates Gas, a subsidiary of ENOC Group, donating free LPG gas cylinders to 1,000 families in need.
