Good Deed Squad

The Good Deed Squad started when a group of expats decided to lend a helping hand to known activist and humanitarian, Noor Al Obaid, in June 2020. What started as meal distributions soon progressed to food supply distributions to those who were the most affected by the pandemic in Kuwait.

The founding members consist of 7 Indian expats, Sammar Hussain, Jithin Jacob, Dominique Dias, Ahmed Kidwai, Calvin D’souza, Hanson Aranha, Joyston Dsouza, and Faraz Riaz from Pakistan, all born and raised in Kuwait.

At first, The Good Deed Squad started pulling in donations from friends and family with which they purchased and organized food hampers that would support a family for a month or more. But given the volume of people in need, they decided to start an Instagram page where applicants and donors could both reach them. To date, they have received approximately 10,500 requests from expats mostly that have lost their jobs and income due to COVID-19. Due to the generous donations received, they were able to provide to 4,500 requests and currently have about 7,000 remaining.

Their goal is to first be able to complete their list and help as many people as possible. Being able to meet these families and speak to them, they say it is truly heartbreaking to see some of the unfortunate living conditions and helpless looks on the faces of thousands. Their only challenge is the lack of funds at this moment and they are doing their best to fundraise and spread the work that they do so that more can reach out to help in any way possible.


Sheikha Al Habshi

Sheikha Al Habshi is an artist and illustrator based in Kuwait. Sheikha’s art is mainly centred around identity and self-care as a form of coping in a highly technological age. Being torn between tradition and the constant change of the online arena, her art focuses on women and other marginalized figures seen in Kuwait and the Middle East, and how these figures evolve in digital spaces as well as in more conservative settings. She uses her art as her own way of taking up space, raising questions of gender roles and sexuality in a culture where tradition and privacy play an important role.
