As part of its Ramadan celebrations, Fairprice will provide free drinks and dates for Muslim customers to break fast from April 13 to May 12. 

These complimentary items will be given 30 minutes before and after breaking fast at 60 FairPrice stores. FairPrice has been doing so annually as part of its community outreach programme since 2009. 

Due to the ongoing pandemic, staff members will facilitate the self-collection of pre-packed individual date bags to accommodate safe distancing measures. 

FairPrice also reminded its customers to adhere to the measures in place to ensure everyone’s safety during this period.

FairPrice Foundation will also donate $20,000 and 100 hampers to Yayasan MENDAKI to provide relief to low-income families in the Muslim community through awarding bursaries, subsidies for school fees and other academic programme initiatives.

The hampers contain daily necessities such as rice, oil and noodles to help alleviate the cost of living for low-income families. 

Including this year’s donation, FairPrice would have donated $360,000 to Yayasan MENDAKI since 2014.
