In order to celebrate Eid al-Fitr, the management of Aspire Zone Foundation (AZF) invited the staff to join them for an E-Majlis on Sunday to connect in these challenging times online and to exchange Eid wishes.

This comes as Qatar is experiencing a unique celebration of Eid al-Fitr his year, with the authorities urging citizens and residents to stay at home and protect themselves and the wider community from the Covid-19 pandemic.

‘It’s very important to reaffirm that we stand together as one this Eid, to celebrate synergy and togetherness. Eid is an occasion to exchange greetings with family and friends, this year it has come at a time when physical distancing is being enforced for our well-being and health,’ said AZF CEO Mohamed Khalifa al-Suwaidi, who was part of the virtual meeting along with Aspire Academy director-general Ivan Bravo,  Aspetar CEO Dr Abdulaziz Jeham al-Kuwari and Aspire Logistics director-general Abdulla Nasser al-Nuaimi.

The participants used the opportunity to talk with members of the management, while videos were shown highlighting the diversity of Aspire as well as featuring greetings and Eid wishes in different languages.

‘Eid al-Fitr, one of the most important religious ocasions in the Muslim calendar marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan, is traditionally celebrated with mosque prayers, family feasts and shopping for new clothes, gifts and sweet treats. But this year, the celebration is overshadowed by the fast-spreading respiratory disease. Although there will be no community events and gatherings this year, those

celebrating can make the most of the unique time with their loved ones at home,’ AZF has said in a statement.

Aspire Zone Foundation stressed that it was one of the first government entities in the country to apply the quarantine policy imposed by the State in the early days of the pandemic outbreak towards mid-March of this year.
