Dubai Initiative: Supplying Free Meals to Labour Camps
The Box of Hope initiative in Dubai is providing free daily meals to 2,500 people. Thanks to the generosity of this effort many people will avoid going hungry. This is especially important during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Dubai community gives back
The Box of Hope initiative is being run by the Plan B Group. Their CEO Harmeek Singh is the leader of the initiative. One of the main objectives of this initiative is to support people during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Approximately 1,400 workers have received food parcels in Ajman. Camps in Dubai receive around 800 boxes. Box of Hope has cooperated with the Punjabi Dhaba restaurant chain to deliver these boxes two times per day. The initiative is also working with the UAE Food Bank.
“We are doing our duty, which is by maintaining hygiene standards, giving special prices to customers and giving free meals to the needy”, said the owner of Punjabi Dhaba, Armanjeet Singh.
By working as a community the people of the United Arab Emirates will defeat the Coronavirus. Without cooperation, there is no victory.
Standing together in solidarity
Singh hopes to relieve the stresses caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. Box of Hope is currently offering sessions with online counsellors. He stated that it is important for residents of the UAE to stand by each other and do the best they can in these testing times.
Essential supplies for needy homes
The Box of Hope initiative has also supplied 250 boxes of essential supplies to needy homes. Each box contains weekly food supplies, surgical masks, protective gloves, and hand sanitizer. 100 homes have currently received these donations.
Now that it is a legal requirement to wear a mask and gloves when leaving the house these supplies will come in very useful.
