Dubai: Alfardan Group has announced a donation of Dh1 million to support the ‘1 Billion Meals’ campaign — the region’s largest drive of its kind, initiated by the UAE, to provide food support to the underprivileged and undernourished in less-fortunate communities across 50 countries.

The group’s donation, equivalent to one million meals, is a generous addition to the donations by several other benefactors to the initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

The ‘1 Billion Meals’ initiative, organised by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), aims to alleviate global hunger and battle malnutrition in less-fortunate communities across the world, especially among vulnerable groups such as women, children, refugees, displaced persons and victims of disasters and crises.
