Abu Dhabi Ma'an delivers over 3 million meals to workers

ABU DHABI, May 9, 2020

Abu Dhabi's Authority of Social Contribution (Ma’an) has announced that it has already delivered more than 3 million nutritious meals to thousands of workers across the emirate under its ‘Together We Share’ initiative.

Since deliveries started on May 1, meals have been provided for tens of thousands of workers based in accommodation across 35 complexes in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain and Al Dhafra region, with the programme set to run throughout 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, said its top official.
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, remarked Salama Al Ameemi, the Director General of Ma’an.
"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," she stated.
According to her, Abu Dhabi 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," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
