Dubai, UAE, 13 April 2022: Azizi Developments, a leading private developer in the UAE, is donating AED 10 million to the One Billion Meals initiative, a social movement, driven by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to curb global hunger in underserved communities. The announcement comes as part of Azizi’s diverse philanthropic efforts across sustainability, social inclusion, equality, and global health, among others.
The developer’s contribution will secure food parcels that are sent to the disadvantaged in 50 countries across four continents during the holy month of Ramadan, as part of the initiative organised by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI).
In his comments, Mr Mirwais Azizi, Founder and Chairman of Azizi Developments, said: "This very important social movement, launched in light of the holy month of Ramadan, which is marked by togetherness and the spirit of giving, and driven by the wise leadership and humanitarian devotion of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, is undoubtedly the single most powerful, effectual initiative of its kind in the realm of curbing global hunger. With 800 million people around the world suffering from undernourishment, it is up to each and every one of us to contribute to securing a brighter future in which all of humanity has access to vital, healthy nutrition. We will stand steadfast with this cause for years to come, and with the notion in mind that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, we encourage participation to ensure a happier, healthier tomorrow for those in need."
The initiative is launched simultaneously with the holy month of Ramadan to encourage individuals and public and private entities to donate and support the cause. The series of food campaigns started with the locally held ‘10 Million Meals’ that supported COVID-19-hit communities across the UAE throughout Ramadan in 2020. The movement has since gained traction and is going international, with it now covering 50 countries and providing one billion meals.
