Saudi actors and comedians worked as waiters for a day serving over 200 orphans from Ensan Charity Committee for Orphan Care at a Riyadh restaurant.
The project “aims to activate the role of women in the Saudi society,” said one of the organizers.
Female students under the age of 24 organized the unique initiative, under the administration of one of the teachers.
The participating actors and comedians had to dress as waiters, offering menus, serving the ordered dishes and provide other helpful tips such as recommendations on the food.
Prominent Saudi comedian Faiz al-Malki called on businessmen, businesswomen, and all those who can, to support Ensan Charity, instead of “leaving the burden on the government.”
Ensan Charity houses around five thousand orphans according to al-Malki.
Al-Malki donated his Twitter account to the cause, tweeting, “a charity society for the cause of humanity,” to his 1 million followers in September.
