A Robin Hood in GoD

August 11, 2009

An unforeseen flow of consumer goods in the wake of Dubai’s ‘meltdown.’ Note how many of the foreigners comment the difficulty of finding charitable organizations in the Emirates. ‘The charity Take My Junk UAE is the idea of Faisal Khan. The 34-year-old businessman said he was so moved by the plight of the Emirates’ labourers he wanted to do something positive to help. […] Job losses and the economic uncertainty mean many Dubai residents are forced to downsize from larger premises to cheaper accommodation. All of this has created a surplus of good quality junk. The service is almost unique and demand is so high that Mr Khan is forced to turn down dozens of daily requests.’
