Indian expat sets charity record in UAE

New Delhi, May 20: A Dubai-based charity owned by an Indian expat has set a new Guinness World Record.

The charity, named PCT Humanity, set a new record for ‘Longest Line of Hunger Relief Package’ with its efforts towards iftar distribution during the ongoing Ramadan fasting season.

According to Gulf News, the charity was founded by Joginder Singh Salaria, who owns a company named Pehal International, which is based at the Dubai Industrial Park.

Salaria said in a statement to the media that the initiative was a continuation of the vegetarian iftar being held daily at the premises of his company.

“This is an incredible moment for all of us in the long journey of transforming lives of people and bringing smiles to them. Besides the record, our main aim is to feed people pure vegetarian food to stay healthy and fit and also save animals. We are glad people are joining us in spreading this message,” Salaria said in the statement.

Adjudicated by Douglas Palau of behalf of Guiness World Record, the attempt saw iftar meals comprising seven items spread in a line without any gap between individual packages spread out for a kilometre.

The event also saw performances by Indian musicians and a free medical camp was also conducted.
