7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

A to­tal of 157,000 meals were dis­trib­uted to the needy by the Emi­rates Red Cres­cent this Ra­madan, beat­ing last year’s fig­ure of 45,000 meals. The meals were do­nated to ERC by ho­tels in the UAE as part of the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Sav­ing Grace cam­paign. Cam­paign su­per­vi­sor Sul­tan Al Shehi said that the large num­ber of meals this year was be­cause of ‘ho­tels’ im­proved at­ti­tudes’. Al Shehi said: “Last year, the ho­tels were re­luc­tant, but this year there’s been so many. They trust us more and we’ve es­tab­lished good re­la­tion­ships. “We’ve had many more vans this year go­ing around the coun­try.”
