Dubai, UAE – Dar Al Ber Society, committed to vulnerable segments of the society, has contributed 169,980 free meals against Dh1,359,844 in 2016 and this year so far.

The Society, based in Dubai, distributes the ready-made meals to low-income blue-collar workers under a pioneering project themed ‘Feeding Food’, according to Mohamed Suhail Al Muhairi, Head of Community Service Sector.

Philanthropists are urged to observe and put in place the Quranic verse, which reads ‘And they give food out of love for Him to the poor and the orphan and the captive’, he added.

“Prophet Muhammad (Peace be upon him) has also urged the faithful to do the same, saying: (O people, spread peace, feed the hungry, and pray at night when people are sleeping and you will enter Paradise in peace).”

The project, being carried out all the yearlong, will help ease the suffering of low-income people and open the door for new sources for the benefit of eligible people, Al Muhairi stated.

“The promising venture is also in line with the initiatives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and his Emirates Food Bank drive in the Year of Giving.”
