With the 1 Billion Meals initiative inching towards its target, the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) has announced a donation of Dh3 million to the campaign that aims to provide food support to the underprivileged and undernourished in less fortunate communities across 50 countries.

Adnoc's donation, equivalent to three million meals, is a significant addition to those of several individuals and organisations to alleviate global hunger and battle malnutrition, which threaten 800 million people worldwide and take the lives of 25,000 people per day.

It is in line with the values ​​of human fraternity, which aligns with the nation’s vision and efforts to provide aid and relief to the less fortunate around the world.”
