Ruler of Dubai launches Ramadan effort to provide sustainable food help


Dubai — Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, the ruler of Dubai, has started a One Billion Meals Endowment initiative that aims to sustainably give hundreds of millions of meals to those in need, Emirates News Agency reported.

The initiative will create a fund to build a resilient and sustainable food aid system to fight hunger and give disadvantaged populations a safety net.

Also, it will try to help people affected by world conflicts, natural disasters, and crises.

One in ten individuals, or 828 million people, worldwide suffer from hunger, according to Sheikh Mohammed. It is our responsibility, both as people and as Muslims, to help those in need, especially during the month of Ramadan.

“Even a tiny, ongoing investment has a greater impact than a huge, one-time gift”,

The initiative, he continued, was a message to humanity from the UAE and its citizens.

“Our moral code leads us to take the lead in the worldwide initiatives to eradicate hunger and alleviate suffering,” he said.

The Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum Global Initiatives are followed in the execution of the campaign.

In line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, it improves the UAE’s contribution to global initiatives to end hunger. Additionally, it builds on earlier Ramadan efforts in the UAE.
