Supporting the ’10 million meals’ campaign to provide food assistance to coronavirus-affected communities in UAE.
Liberty Dental Clinic announced donating 12,000 meals, worth Dh100,000 to the UAE’s biggest food distribution drive that aims to support communities affected by the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
The ’10 million meals’ campaign, launched on Sunday, enables individuals and institutions to make financial and in-kind donations towards providing meals and food parcels to low-income individuals and families across the country throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
Dr. Majd Naji, Chairman of Liberty Dental Clinic, said, “Being part of the UAE society for more than 20 years, it is our duty to contribute to empowering vulnerable communities through the ’10 million meals’ campaign.”
He added, “The global crisis we are currently witnessing has driven millions of people to unemployment and hunger across the world. It is the role of each and every financially capable individual and entity in the UAE to lend a helping hand for everyone in need.”
Naji praised the UAE’s continuous humanitarian campaigns dedicated to empower the most vulnerable across the world, reflecting the values of tolerance and coexistence embedded in the country’s fabric.
