A humanitarian foundation will provide a bottle of water with each of 10 million meals set to be distributed to needy families during Ramadan.

The UAE Water Aid Foundation - a campaigning organisation tackling water scarcity across the globe - has thrown its support behind the '10 million' meals initiative launched this week by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid.

Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum, wife of the Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, will lead the country's biggest community campaign by providing meals or food parcels to support people and families affected by the Covid-19 outbreak,

The water aid foundation, also known as Suqia UAE, is working in partnership with bottled water producer Mai Dubai to play its part in the nationwide drive.

"Amid the global fight against the Covid-19 outbreak, the ’10 million meals’ campaign comes to prove the UAE’s commitment to safeguarding its citizens and residents through ensuring a decent life to the vulnerable. These difficult times reveal our true values of generosity and humanity," said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, chairman of the board of trustees of Suqia.

"This campaign adds to the UAE’s long journey in humanitarian work, consolidating the country’s status as a global capital for sustainable action thanks to its continuous efforts to safeguard lives in the ongoing crisis."

The ’10 million meals’ campaign enables companies, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, as well as the general public to purchase a number of meals online or donate packaged and canned food supplies to be distributed to disadvantaged families and individuals from different nationalities living across the UAE.

Donors can visit www.10millionmeals.ae to buy a number of meals to be distributed.

The money for the cause can be transferred online or through a text message.

For in-kind donations of food supplies, parcels or other services, people can contact toll free 800 4006.
