Dubai announced the launch of the Bread for All initiative that aims to aid underprivileged families and workers by providing free bread at various times of the day.
The digital initiative aims to provide fresh bread to those in need through smart machines deployed in several outlets. The pre-programmed machines prepare bread and provide it free of charge as part of a modern and sustainable model of charity work.
It engages community members and enables individuals to contribute to the first initiative of its kind that adopts the principle of short-term community funding.
The project realizes the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, who stressed that “In the UAE, no one sleeps hungry or in need” at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
