As part of a Ramadan campaign, Dubai-based start-up Makemymeal.ae hopes to deliver one million free meals to needy UAE residents, according to CEO Deepak Jain.
According to local media reports, the company is working with the UAE Red Crescent and UAE Food Bank on the initiative.
“One can donate as little as AED 70 and feed 5 people in need,” Jain is quoted as saying in the Khaleej Times. “AED 1 per meal is shared with the UAE Red Crescent ad we distribute with the help of UAE Food Bank.
“One can also volunteer along with donation. We are working with corporates like Legrand, Elextrolux, Transworld Group and many more,” he added.
Launched in 2016, the company currently has over 10,000 subscribers and over 20 partner restaurants and caterers across the UAE.For all the latest business news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
