The UAE Strives To Combat Hunger With Its ‘100 Million Meals’ Campaign This Ramadan

Aiming at combating poverty and hunger in the region, the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign has been rolled out this Ramadan, providing meals to underprivileged families across 20 countries. The initiative is an extension of the 2020 initiative, ’10 Million Meals’, which was launched specifically in the UAE to ensure food for those affected by COVID-19.

Delivering to countries such as Lebanon, Egypt, Jordan and Pakistan, the scheme is part of the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), a foundation established in 2015 to support and empower communities around the world.

Throughout the month, ‘100 Million Meals’ will continue to give back while actively contributing “to achieving the second of the UN Sustainable Development Goals that aims to end hunger, achieve food security and improve nutrition by 2030,” as stated on its official website.

Many regional celebrities and the corporate community have been supporting the campaign, including beauty entrepreneur Huda Kattan, who has donated Dhs1 million, and Al Rostamani Group that has contributed Dhs10 million to the cause. To find out more and donate, head to the ‘100 Million Meals’ official website.
