With the starting of the Holy month of Ramadan, the spirit of helping needy people in the society has been gearing up with the launch of different types of charity campaigns.
The “100 Million Meals” campaign is open to individuals and companies — inside and outside the UAE- to donate the value of meals. Every Dhs1 provides the basic food items that can prepare one meal in beneficiary countries.
The campaign raised over Dhs78 million, equivalent to providing more than 78 million meals, as massive donations continue to pour in from individuals, companies and entities inside and outside the UAE.
The recently launched scan and pay mobile application, SocioPay, powered by noqodi ensures that with every transaction, a percentage is donated to a charity of customer’s choice.
“100 Million Meals” campaign, the region’s biggest food distribution drive, concluded on Saturday after drawing massive donations from 385,000 individuals, companies, businessmen and philanthropists across 51 countries through various donation channels and two charity auctions.
"Dewa is honoured to be a major supporter of the initiative, which was launched in conjunction with the Holy Month of Ramadan, and is the biggest humanitarian initiative of its kind in the region and globally," said Saeed Al Tayer.
The campaign will also support the objectives of the 1 Billion Meals initiative, which will provide food aid to the underprivileged and undernourished in 50 countries across the globe.
