Overwhelming donations secured 14 million meals for families and individuals affected by the Covid-19 pandemic in the UAE as the '10 million meals' campaign completed its second week.

Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, wife of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, and Chairperson of the Board of Trustees of UAE Food Bank, said the overwhelming response from individuals and entities to support the '10 million meals' campaign throughout the holy month of Ramadan is a true manifestation of the UAE's social solidarity and cohesion.

She noted the campaign marks another milestone in Sheikh Mohammed's inspiring and continuous journey of giving.

Following Sheikh Mohammed's announcement of the campaign earlier in April, companies, humanitarian organisations, businessmen, government and private entities and the general public have rushed to make financial or in-kind donations towards providing meals or food parcels to support low-income individuals and families.

The campaign will continue receiving donations to provide food support for communities hard hit by the pandemic till the end of the holy month.
