Azizi Developments has increased its contribution towards the “1 Billion Meals Endowment” campaign by adding another Dhs50 million, bringing the total of its contributions to Dhs100 million.
This makes it the largest individual contribution to the campaign, which aims to establish the largest sustainable food aid endowment fund.
Azizi Developments pledged to contribute Dhs100 million over a period of 5 years to help achieve food security in underprivileged communities around the world.
Mirwais Azizi, Founder and Chairman of Azizi Developments, said, “Innovative and remarkable humanitarian initiatives, and the “1 Billion Meals Endowment” campaign, create a sustainable framework for positive change, which promotes quality of life, preserves human dignity and alleviates suffering of those in need around the world.
“His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum taught us that charity efforts in the UAE know no boundaries, which is proved by the “1 Billion Meals Endowment” campaign, a key milestone that further enhances the UAE’s humanitarian role on a global level.”
The “1 Billion Meals Endowment” campaign aligns with the UAE’s vision of institutionalising and sustaining charity work for the benefit of underprivileged communities. The food aid endowment fund planned under the campaign represents an open invitation for the world to join forces and work together towards achieving food security, as a key factor of social stability around the world.
The campaign also represents a major shift in the way humanitarian and charity work is conducted, by adopting the model of organised group contributions and long-term planning to ensure sustained benefits.
