100 Million Meals: A Great InitiativeMay 4, 2021
The ‘100 Million Meals’ initiative, the Arab world’s largest food drive, aims to provide food parcels to empower needy individuals and families in 20 Middle Eastern, Asian, and African countries to cook their own meals during Ramadan. The aim of the initiative is to provide enough basic food products to prepare up to 100 million meals.
Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), the campaign’s organizer, is working with local food banks and charities in the recipient countries to ensure that those in need receive food quickly and efficiently.
The 100 Million Meals drive has already reached beneficiary communities in Jordan, Pakistan, and Egypt, as well as Ghana, Angola, and Uganda, with the support of its global partners. It will visit 30 countries in total, feeding the hungry one food parcel at a time.
During the Holy Month of Ramadan, low-income individuals and needy families in Uganda, Ghana, and Angola began receiving parcels containing essential food products to allow them to prepare their meals. Every AED1 donated to the ‘100 Million Meals’ initiative provides a meal to an individual in a developing country.
Either through the website, SMS, bank transfer, and call centre, companies and individuals can donate as little as AED
From the website www.100millionmeals.ae, any person, institution, corporation, or businessman from within or outside the UAE can donate any number of meals.
