Amir Ali Khemani: Serving the world to make a difference | GulfNews.comDubai: During Ramadan this year, when people gathered to end their fast, one Dubai resident prepared to serve meals to them — free of cost.

Amir Ali, a Pakistani who arrived in the UAE in 1979, is the owner of a cafeteria in the Oud Metha area of Dubai, and has been offering free iftar meals during Ramadan for six years.

He told Gulf News: “When I was younger, and living in Pakistan, my uncle used to serve free meals during Ramadan every year. During the afternoons, we would cut fruits and prepare some meals and people would arrive at iftar time to eat.

“Growing up, I saw this regularly, and it became a tradition. I wanted to continue the legacy when I moved to the UAE. But, I couldn’t do so immediately as my financial situation became bad. However, things turned around six years ago, and I picked up where I had left off.”

The cafeteria opened 15 years ago, but Ali took over in 2011. Other than it being a tradition, providing someone a meal is a way for Ali to give back for the kindness shown him.
