Over 450,000 meals donated as part of '10 Million Meals' campaign

Over 15,000 donors have pledged 450,000 meals and food parcels online to support those in need during the Covid-19 pandemic as part of the ’10 Million Meals’ campaign.

The campaign allows individuals and institutions to make financial and in-kind donations towards providing meals and food parcels to low-income individuals and families across the country during Ramadan.

Donors can purchase a preferred number of meals at www.10millionmeals.ae to be distributed to disadvantaged individuals and families across the country, or via SMS through numbers listed on the website.

Donations can also be made a transfer to a Dubai Islamic Bank account, IBAN AE430240001580857000001.

For in-kind distributions, donors can provide package or canned goods or supplies by calling the toll-free number at 8004006.

“As part of this campaign, meals will reach only those in dire need for food after losing their income during these exceptional circumstances,” said Dr. Ahmed Al Haddad, Grand Mufti of Dubai and director of the Fatwa Department at the Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities in Dubai.
