DUBAI, 12th April, 2022 (WAM) — The MAG Group, which has diversified business activities in real estate development, engineering, contracting, industry, trade, shipping, services and hospitality, has announced its donation of AED1 million in support of the 1 Billion Meals initiative, the largest of its kind in the region to provide food support for the underprivileged and the undernourished in 50 countries around the world, especially in vulnerable groups such as children, refugees, displaced people and those affected by crises and natural disasters.
The 1 Billion Meals, the most comprehensive food support campaign in the history of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), provides food support to the hungry and those suffering from malnutrition due to their difficult social and humanitarian conditions. It opens the door for all individuals and institutions to support the neediest groups by providing a range of donation channels until the goal is achieved. In addition, the 1 Billion Meals initiative supports the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for 2030, including the goal of eliminating hunger in the world.
The donation made by the MAG Group equates to 1 million meals as it will fund the basic components required to prepare nutritious meals that satisfy the needs of the impoverished in the lower-income communities targeted by the initiative.
A Firm Commitment to Human Values Talal Al-Gaddah, CEO of MAG Property Development, said, “Giving is well-established in the culture of the UAE, embodied by the country’s leadership in local, regional and global humanitarian initiatives. The 1 Billion Meals initiative launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, is a leading example of a charity campaign that creates a broad social movement, one in which the various segments of society, economic activities, government and private sector institutions contribute to reach the goals of an initiative launched from the UAE to help the needy around the world.”
