Battling starvation and malnutrition
Sara Al Nuaimi, MBRGI Director, stated: “In Egypt, humanitarian and social institutions worked together with relevant authorities and charities in an integrated network to ensure food aid reached a wide scope of beneficiaries. Our collaboration enabled us to utilise the Food Banking Regional Network’s established field and logistics operations to ensure swift delivery of food parcels to those in need.”
Double the goal
Launched in Ramadan 2021, the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign, organised by MBRGI, concluded in May after amassing greater than double its focused donations to supply 216 million meals throughout 30 nations in 4 continents.
The MBRGI has been collaborating with Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Humanitarian and Charity Establishment, UN World Food Programme, Food Banking Regional Network, and native humanitarian and charity organisations in beneficiary nations to make sure swift and wide-reaching supply of meals help to deprived people and households. Beneficiaries had been focused based mostly on the databases of native charity organisations. Food help distribution continues to be underway in a number of nations the world over.
Model for humanitarian work

The campaign is reaching individuals and families most impacted by hunger and malnutrition, which today affects more than 821 million across the globe.
