Dubai, UAE:  This week, Al Fardan Exchange, a leader in the UAE remittance market and pioneer in the money exchange industry, announced the winners of their life-changing Ramadan competition, which saw cash prizes amounting $200,000 including two grand prizes of a brand-new BMW car and USD $50,000 up for grabs. The giveaway was initiated by Al Fardan Exchange to represent the importance of giving through the Holy Month of Ramadan. 

The giveaway was created to make a meaningful difference to society and Al Fardan customers and ran between the 6th of April until the end of Ramadan, with the draw open to all UAE residents. Vikas Prakash Chand was one of the lucky grand prize winners and was delighted to win a brand-new BMW X2. Originally from India, Vikas is currently working with his father.

 “I feel very overwhelmed to have received such a great gesture from Al Fardan Exchange, especially since facing and overcoming so many hardships in the recent year,” said Vikas.

“I would like to thank Al Fardan Exchange for giving back to their customers, particularly in the holy month of Ramadan.”

Vikas revealed he was looking forward to enjoying the car on the weekend with friends after weekdays spent in the office. “I’m truly so grateful for this gift,” he added.

Reda Abdelraouf Mohamed Mohamed, winner of $50,000, was surprised and greeted with a cheque for $50,000 after getting a call from one of Al Fardan Exchange’s employees. 

An overjoyed Reda, said: “I was ecstatic! I couldn’t believe that I had been lucky enough to even win $500, let alone $50,000! This gives me and my family so many opportunities. I’m thinking to either invest it back in my home country of Egypt or in a commercial investment in the UAE”. 

Both Vikas and Reda were invited to the Al Fardan Exchange headquarters, where their prizes were handed by Hasan Fardan Al Fardan, CEO of Al Fardan Exchange.

Commenting on his motivation to launch the Ramadan initiative, Hasan said he was looking to provide an opportunity to bring a smile to customers faces, as they continue to recover from challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic and he was delighted to have played a part in bringing some good fortune to these two deserving winners.
