The ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, has launched the 1 Billion Meals Endowment campaign. The campaign seeks to establish a fund to provide hundreds of millions of meals sustainably to those in need and create a resilient food aid system that combats hunger and provides a safety net for vulnerable groups.

Sheikh Mohammed expressed that during the month of Ramadan, it is our responsibility as humans and Muslims to support those in need, particularly as there are approximately 828 million people globally who suffer from hunger, which is equivalent to one out of every ten people.

“Even a small but sustainable contribution makes a bigger difference than a one-time large contribution.”

He added that the campaign was a message from the UAE and its people to humanity.

He said: “Our moral code compels us to take a leading position in the global efforts to eradicate hunger and alleviate suffering.”

The campaign is run in line with the Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum Global Initiatives.

It strengthens the UAE’s contribution to international efforts to eradicate hunger, in accordance with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. It also builds on the UAE’s previous Ramadan campaigns.
