Abu Dhabi, 9 May 2020: The Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an has announced its ‘Together We Share’ initiative has already delivered more than more than 3 million nutritious meals to workers across the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
Since deliveries started on 1 May, meals have been provided for tens of thousands of workers based in accommodation across 35 complexes in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra, with the programme set to run throughout the whole month of Ramadan.
Funded through community contributions to Ma’an’s ‘Together We Are Good’ programme, the 450,000 daily meals are being provided in response to the current health and economic challenges.
The ‘Together We Are Good’ programme is the first project of Ma’an’s Social Fund that allows community contributions to help tackle social challenges. The Social Fund is the official government channel to receive contributions for these purposes.
Her Excellency Salama Al Ameemi, Director General of Ma’an, said: “To already have provided more than 3 million meals is an incredible testament to our ‘Together We Share’ initiative, and we are very proud of everyone in our community who has contributed to date.
“It’s important that every section of our community benefits in some way, and to provide more than 450,000 meals every day during Ramadan will continue to provide comfort to hundreds of thousands of people across the Emirate.”
The Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an has already provided support with school fees to parents of children attending Abu Dhabi private schools through its ‘Together We Are Good’ programme. This was followed by its initiative to provide affected residents in the Emirate with essential nutritional supplies via food baskets for individuals, couples and families. Further initiatives on health and basic needs will be launched in due course.
Ma’an launched a new toll-free helpline (800-3088) and a specially created microsite (togetherwearegood.ae) for those in need of support to contact the Authority of Social Contribution – Ma’an about their requirements.
Participants wishing to contribute financially to ‘Together We Are Good’ can send SMS messages to 6670 (AED 1000), 6678 (500 AED), 6683 (100 AED) and 6658 (50 AED).
