Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, praised the UAE for its efforts and support of the campaign, saying “This is the UAE.”
Today, we conclude the UAE’s ‘100 Million Meals’ humanitarian campaign that we launched at the beginning of Ramadan.

The main objective of the drive was to help the countries that suffered the hardships brought on by the pandemic. Many organizations, companies and individuals came together in support and donated to the drive, and HH Sheikh Mohammed stated again that this is proof of the UAE’s overwhelming community engagement to help and do good, and it’ll “always remain a global capital of philanthropy.”
