ARC-Ramazan Collection Poster-01

Advocating the Rights of Children (ARC), welcomes and invites the public to donate gifts to children living in Shelters as the holy month of Ramazan draws closer. Since its inception in 2009, ARC has been facilitating the Ramazan Collection annually, to provide a platform for the community to help make a difference in the lives of over 140 children between the ages of 0 to 18 years currently living in Kudakudhinge Hiya and Amaan Hiya in Villimale’ and Fiyavathi Shelter in Hulhumale’.

Similar to previous years, ARC will be working in collaboration with the Centre for Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) in making the necessary arrangements this year as well. The Ramazan Collection 2019 will be held at CHSE from the 24th to the 30th of April 2019 and gifts and donations from the public will be received from 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm every day. When donating, kindly ensure that all items are in excellent condition (new or gently used). For further inquiries, please contact 7799544.
