Azizi Property and real estate company Donates over 1 Billion Afgh to Campaign against Hunger in UAE
DID Press: Azizi Developments, a property and real estate company in Dubai, has donated AED 50 million towards the One Billion Meals Global initiative in the UAE.
This comes as, according to international organizations’ statistics, Afghanistan is currently suffering from an economic crisis and nearly two-thirds of its population is hungry.
The initiative is launched simultaneously with the holy month of Ramadan to encourage individuals and public and private entities to curb global hunger in underserved communities.
“As part of our commitment to humanitarian efforts in the UAE and to our social responsibilities, we are proud to share that we have donated AED 50 million toward the One Billion Meals initiative,” said Mirwais Azizi, Founder, and Chairman of Azizi Developments.
The One Billion Meals initiative, a social movement, driven by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to curb global hunger in underserved communities.
Aziz development said in a statement that the series of food campaigns started with the locally held ‘10 Million Meals’ that supported COVID-19-hit communities across the UAE throughout Ramadan in 2020. The movement has since gained traction and is going international, with it now covering 50 countries and providing one billion meals.
“This very important social movement, launched in light of the holy month of Ramadan, which is marked by togetherness and the spirit of giving, and driven by the wise leadership and humanitarian devotion of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, is undoubtedly the single most powerful, effectual initiative of its kind in the realm of curbing global hunger,” said Mirwais Azizi.
“With 800 million people around the world suffering from undernourishment, it is up to each and every one of us to contribute to securing a brighter future in which all of humanity has access to vital, healthy nutrition,” he added.
This comes as the people of Afghanistan heavily suffer from poverty and economic crisis. International organizations have also warned of drought, poverty, and widespread hunger in this country.
