Dubai beauty mogul donates 1 million meals to UAE campaign
Beauty mogul Huda Kattan took to Instagram to announce she has taken part in a food drive campaign launched by the ruler of Dubai.
The program – 100 Million Meals mission – was launched to provide food to disadvantaged communities across 20 countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. The aim is to combat hunger and malnutrition, made only worse by the pandemic.
The Dubai-based mogul revealed she has donated one million meals via her cosmetics company Huda Beauty.
On an Instagram video, she said:
“It’s hard to believe that in today’s world, in 2021, we’re still dealing with issues of malnutrition and that every ten seconds a child dies because of hunger. This initiative is so incredible and it’s just a reminder of how each and every single one of us has the power to make a change,”
Adding: “I’m so proud to live in a country that prioritizes world hunger.”
She encouraged her 2.2 million followers to donate to the programme.
In 2020, the 10 Million Meals campaign was launched to help those hit-hardest by the pandemic. And this year’s 100 Million Meals is off to a great start!
Within a week of its launch, the initiative has raised over $21,200, 000, that’s over 78 million meals, and donations continue to pour in from individuals and companies inside and outside the UAE.
Kattan is known for being an avid humanitarian and often steps up to help those who need it most.
