“The One Billion Meals campaign expresses the true values of the people of the Emirates,” he said.
Sheikh Mohammed announced the One Billion Meals campaign at the start of the Holy Month, which was a major step by the UAE in helping to achieve the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal aiming to end hunger by 2030.
Under Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) this campaign was launched to empower communities and drive positive change for humanity through an integrated food supply ecosystem.
Once again, His Highness has shown outstanding leadership on behalf of the UAE.
