His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of the Dubai Emirate has announced the launch of the campaign with a goal of one billion meals to be raised throughout the Holy Month of Ramadan. This will mark the third year of the successful Ramadan food campaigns, however, this time the UAE has raised the bar with 100 billion meals from last year’s 100 million.
The initiative will run until its target number of one billion is achieved, catering to the 800 million people around the world who are undernourished, the majority of them being women and children. This campaign also works towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals to end hunger by 2030 by providing hunger-stricken communities in 50 countries with food.

“Brothers and sisters, today we announce the one billion meals campaign for the poor and the needy around the world,” said Sheikh Mohammed via Twitter. “The campaign will begin at the beginning of the Holy Month and will continue for the coming years until the goal is achieved.”

“The goal of this campaign is to deliver one billion meals and one billion humanitarian messages from the UAE to the world,” mentioned Sheikh Mohammed.
To achieve this, food parcels are currently being distributed in partnership with the UN World Food Programme, the Food Banking Regional Network (FBRN), the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment (MBRCH), and many other humanitarian organizations.
Last year, the UAE presented a similar campaign but with the goal of 100 million meals which were accumulated in the short span of 10 days. Including 185,000 donors and the organization of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, the target was successfully reached.
This food campaign series began as a means to help Covid-19 stricken families in 2020 by raising 10 million meals. Its motto is, “A person who sleeps with a full stomach while his neighbor is hungry is not a believer.”

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum has shared an important message to mark the Hijri New Year. Taking to Twitter, the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and the Ruler of Dubai outlined what can be learned from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) 1,443 years ago as he migrated from Makkah to Madinah. Today, August 10 (Muharram 1), would mark the first day of the year 1443 according to the Hijri calendar. Sheikh Mohammed outlined that it is one of the most important lessons for the Muslims of today.
“We congratulate the people of the Emirates and the Arab and Islamic nation this year,” he began, adding that migration is “a symbol of transformation from one condition to another. “[It’s] a symbol of movement and rejection of stillness, a symbol of striving and not stopping..migration represents effort and sacrifice to build a better tomorrow,” Sheikh Mohammed wrote, adding, “This is the most important lesson for Muslims today.”

عام هجري جديد ..نبارك لشعب الإمارات وللأمة العربية والإسلامية هذا العام..الهجرة رمز للتحول من حال إلى حال..رمز للحركة ونبذ السكون..رمز للسعي وعدم التوقف..الهجرة تمثل البذل والتضحية لبناء غد أفضل..هذا أهم درس للمسلمين اليوم بعد ١٤٤٣ عاماً من هجرة نبينا وحبيبنا صلى الله عليه وسلم
