BRT Donate BD 2,325 to the Palm Association

Bahrain Round Table donated BD 2,325 to Support 155 less fortunate families in the Feed-a-Family Project during Ramadan. In 2000, two long term resident expatriate ladies wanted to give back to the community in which they lived. The Palm Association, brainchild of this pair of friends, has since grown into a well-respected, not-for-profit, pro-active organization, run by women, with the sole purpose of providing help and assistance to Bahraini families and individuals.
Over the past years it has helped countless families through the distribution of food parcels, educational sponsorship and home improvements.
The Palm Association, through fund-raising events and donations, raises money with the aim of helping Bahraini families whose income would be classed below the poverty line and making a difference in their lives by providing:
•     Food Boxes on a monthly basis through the 'Feed a Family Project';
•     Home improvements through 'Project Rebuild';
•     Assistance and Sponsorship for 'Educational Endeavours'.
Sponsorship of the Feed a Family programme allows the Palm Association to provide and distribute approximately 155 food boxes to the value of BD15 every month to needy families living in Bahrain. Each family has been identified by their trusted community contacts as facing difficult financial situations. Many families live on the bare minimum due to unforeseen and unfortunate circumstances such as the death of a spouse, accident or illness.
By providing food boxes they manage to alleviate the problem a little wherever they can. Families are assessed regularly and whenever a situation improves the family is replaced by another who is in need of the programme. All food items are purchased at wholesale prices, and each food parcel contains basic non-perishable items including rice, flour, dried milk, and sugar. The packages are made up, packed and delivered by the Red Label Tea Company free of charge. The annual cost of supporting one family is BD180.  To date the Palm Association have distributed over 6,000 boxes to needy families. At present they provide for 155 families monthly.
The Palm Association strives to use its funds to the very best advantage by evaluating all requests and projects with objectivity and fairness and use their resources wherever they are needed most. It is against their policy to give cash donations. They ensure total transparency with their financial accounts which are professionally audited every year.
The Palm Association is always looking for sponsors and donations to help support thier ongoing commitments and programmes.
