Dar Al Ber partners with UAE Food Bank

DUBAI, — Dar Al Ber Society has signed an agreement with the Dubai Municipality to support the UAE Food Bank drive launched by H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai earlier this year.

The promising initiative, chaired by the wife of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, H.H. Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, is administered by the civic body here.

The UAE Food Bank drive, which coincided with 11th accession day of H.H. Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, falls under the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives Foundation.

Abdullah Ali bin Zayed Al Falasi, Executive Director of Dar Al Ber, said the society will co-operate with the Dubai Municipality to make the pioneering charity initiative successful.

“We shall provide all support needed to meet the set charity objectives,” he said, while inking the work charter of the drive that started operating its first site at the Al Qouz Industrial area in the presence of entities and dignitaries.

The initiative is part of the values of giving that is deeply rooted in the UAE since the time of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the founder of the country, he added.

“The drive shows how persistent the UAE leadership is to extend white hands to whosoever in need for help in every nook and corner across the globe, disregard their religion, language, colour, and ethnic background.”
