This year, Qatar is experiencing a unique celebration of Eid al-Fitr as authorities have urged citizens and residents to stay home and protect themselves and the wider community from the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to celebrate this special occasion, 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.

“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 where physical distancing is being enforced for our well-being and health,” said AZF CEO, Mr. Mohammed Khalifa Al-Suwaidi, who was part of the virtual meeting as 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 the members of the management, videos were shown that showed the diversity in Aspire featuring greetings and Eid-wishes in many different languages.

Eid al-Fitr, one of the most important Religious Occasion 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, and 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.

It is worth mentioning that Aspire Zone Foundation 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.
