The Dubai charity’s donation will help provide 1.5 million meals worth Dh15 million and over 19,200 food parcels worth Dh13.5 million to low-income individuals and families across the country throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
The ’10 million meals’ campaign, the UAE’s biggest community campaign, enables individuals and institutions to make financial and in-kind donations towards providing food support in the form of 10 million meals or food parcels during the holy month of Ramadan to financially distressed people who have lost their income or had pay cuts amid the coronavirus outbreak.
In a statement, Beit Al Khair Society said the ’10 million meals’ campaign emphasizes that safeguarding lives and preserving the human dignity through securing basic life necessities have always been the top priority for UAE leadership. “Such values are manifested in the UAE’s noble humanitarian initiatives that continue to benefit people across the world. Now is the right time to contribute towards the ’10 million meals’ that ensures no one sleeps hungry in the UAE especially during the holy month of Ramadan.”
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, announced on Sunday the launch of the ’10 million meals’ campaign to support families and individuals affected by the Covid-19 pandemic that left many facing unemployment and income reductions.
