ARC Hands Over Gifts from Ramazan Collection to Children’s Shelters


Advocating the Rights of Children (ARC) in partnership with Centre for Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) has gifted the items from this years’ Ramazan Collection to the children residing in shelters. This year’s donations were handed over to Kudakudhinge Hiyaa and Amaan Hiyaa in Villimale’ and Fiyavathi in Hulhumale’.

ARC is pleased to note that the donations received from the community covered almost all the items requested by the children’s shelters, including clothes, shoes, towels, bed linen, prayer items, story books, board games and toys. In addition, the financial donations received were used to purchase towels, fresh fruits and dates.

ARC would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the students, staff and management of CHSE for their support for the cause. ARC also notes with deep appreciation the assistance provided by Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF) in transporting the donations received to the shelters. On behalf of the 166 children living in shelters at present, ARC wishes to express sincere appreciation to everyone who participated, for their kind-hearted contributions.
