Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid honours Etisalat as a ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign partner

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, honoured Etisalat for its contribution to the remarkable success of the “100 Million Meals” campaign launched by the Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and the charity auction under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mansour bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

Etisalat was honoured in the presence of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and Chairman of the Executive Council, in appreciation of the outstanding support that it provided to the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign, the region’s largest food drive that will benefit underprivileged communities in 30 countries in Middle East, Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America.

Etisalat is proud that exclusive mobile numbers that it had allocated were sold for a total of AED3.6 million through the Most Noble Numbers charity auction to raise funds in support of the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign

Commenting on this occasion, Abdulla Salem Al Mana, General Manager, Dubai Region, Etisalat, said: “Etisalat is proud of this honour which inspires us to be involved in more humanitarian and charitable initiatives by the UAE government. Our participation in the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign stems from our commitment to corporate social responsibility and participation in extending a helping hand to underprivileged families this Ramadan and alleviating the suffering of people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Etisalat has supported the ‘100 Million Meals’ campaign since its launch by pledging to donate five percent of all food orders placed on its Smiles app; promoting the campaign via text messages, social media, and changing the network name to ‘100M Meals’ to raise awareness of the initiative; and allocating exclusive numbers in the numbers charity auction.
