NSA Bahrain distributes Iftar boxes during Ramadan

08 April 2024
Naval Support Activity (NSA) Bahrain, in coordination with the NSA Bahrain Chaplain Corps, take part in the custom of distributing Iftar meal boxes during the holy month of Ramadan to drivers and pedestrians in Manama, Bahrain, April 8.
Traditionally, Iftar boxes contain a light meal comprising dates, water and other snacks. The boxes were provided by the NSA Bahrain Chaplain Corps and given out by Sailors, facilitating the breaking of the fast for drivers during their commute, contributing to their safety and avoid rushing through traffic.
This initiative is part of NSA Bahrain’s Community Relations (COMREL) program, demonstrating the installation’s commitment to voluntary and humanitarian engagements through community interactions that reinforce social responsibility, generosity, compassion and solidarity.
"We are honored to join in the giving spirit during the holy month of Ramadan and give back to a local community that is so giving to our service members and civilians," said Capt. Zachariah Aperauch, commanding officer, NSA Bahrain. "We are always looking for any opportunity to strengthen our longstanding bond with the Kingdom of Bahrain, and this is certainly one we are very excited about."
NSA Bahrain’s mission is to support U.S. and coalition maritime operations throughout the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations by providing security for ships, aircraft and tenants on board NSA Bahrain and assigned detachments. NSA Bahrain provides efficient and effective shore services to sustain the fleet, enable the fighter and support the family with honor, courage and commitment.
