The Diana Award Winner 2022
Ever since Irfan joined the ‘Team Iftar Initiative’, he, his few friends and family have been distributing over 1,000 free Iftar food kits to blue-collar labourers for the 30 days of the month of Ramadan, totalling 240,000 food kits over the last eight years. In January 2022, they adapted this model to pack and distribute sanitation kits to help protect against COVID-19. Irfan also founded the ‘Balakauthukam Teens Club’, a community club for teens all over the city to come together, share their ideas, learn and improve themselves. They organized several events, chess competitions, dialogues, and workshops on subjects like the importance of volunteering and achieving your goals. He has also achieved the feat of cycling across the 7 emirates of the UAE, which has inspired many to face their fears and chase their dreams.
OOB lauds the exemplary achievement of this inspirational youngster! Congratulations.
