Dubai: Mubadala Investment Company has partnered with Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) to support the 1 Billion Meals Initiative, the largest of its kind in the region, with a donation of 5 million dirhams. Through this campaign, the United Arab Emirates provides support to 50 countries through the distribution of food during Ramadan.
Mubadala’s donation, which is equivalent to five million meals, will accelerate the achievement of the initiative’s goal with preliminary distribution across Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, India and Sudan, among other countries.
Homaid Al Shimmari, Deputy Group CEO and Director of Social and Human Capital at Mubadala, said, “Mubadala strives to have a positive impact on societies around the world, and we are honored to contribute to this important initiative. We remain inspired by the vision of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who believed in the power of selfless acts, a concept we aspire to in our own organization. We have been instilled in the values of giving and solidarity since the unification of the United Arab Emirates through our wise leadership, and we are proud to support Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives in their humanitarian commitment.
Donations will help alleviate global hunger and fight malnutrition, reflecting the UAE and Mubadala humanitarian values of influencing positive change in local and global communities.
