Dubai Duty Free has donated AED5 million (US$1.3 million) to the 1 Billion Meals campaign, organized by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI), which aims to feed the underprivileged in 50 countries, particularly vulnerable groups such as children, refugees and those affected by disasters.

On April 12, Dubai Duty Free Executive Vice Chairman & CEO Colm McLoughlin presented the cheque to Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives Director Sara Al Nuaimi during a ceremony at the retailer’s headquarters in Ramoul.
