Chandigarh, April 18, 2022: Chandigarh’s Jaskiran and Ekta are among the Bakers from across Bahrain, who are whipping up a bevy of baked goods during Ramadan to raise money for special needs children and also promote healthy eating in the process.
The Ovenderful Mom Bakers' Community (OMBC) has organised the Ramadan Bake Sale Charity event, running until May 2, with all proceeds from the sales going to the Sneha Recreation Centre, run by the Indian Ladies Association, Bahrain (ILA).
"Various Heathy varieties of baked goods, including chocolate ganache cupcakes, chunky brownies, focaccia bread, different flavours of cookies, chocolate clusters, crinkles, carrot muffins and banana loaf are available during sale informed Jaskiran and Ekta .
"They are beautifully packaged so they will make good iftar gifts as well. Moreover, these baked goodies are made with healthy flours and healthy sugars, and some have no sugar, so they can be enjoyed guilt-free!"
The sale is a virtual event, similar to last year, and baker, instructor and recipe developer, Ekta Sethi is co-ordinating the collection and delivery of items purchased during the charity drive.
This year, eight bakers are participating, two of whom are doing it for the second time.
In addition to Ekta, Bhaarti Passi, Siji Binu, Manjula Akula, Jaskiran Surve, Vedika Harmalkar, Kavitha Chowdary and Soni Khadilkar Damle have been busy baking up a baked goods bounty.
"Being a part of this initiative reminded us of how lucky”, said Jaskiran as all the proceeds of the sale are for needy people of society . Jaskiran and Ekta run their own designer cakes businesses in Bahrain. Ekta also voluntarily teaches baking to special needs children.
“Eat healthy, stay healthy and spread happiness! Because it is in giving that we receive”, says Ekta.
