Zayed Foundation and UAE Embassy Distribute 950 Food Hampers in Sri Lanka

May 11, Colombo (LNW): The Zayed Foundation, under the leadership of Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, collaborated with the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates in Sri Lanka to distribute 950 food hampers filled with dry rations to economically disadvantaged households in the Puttalam and Batticaloa Districts.

At the distribution ceremony, recipients eagerly queued up to receive the compassionate aid, which aimed to support Muslim families in observing their fast during Ramadan without facing undue hardship.

The initiative was facilitated by the Care Lanka Initiative, a prominent humanitarian organization known for its dedication to assisting marginalized groups regardless of religious or ethnic backgrounds. Under the guidance of Ambassador Khaled Nasser Al Ameri, the organization has effectively executed its programs.

In the previous year, the Care Lanka Initiative, in partnership with the UAE Embassy, focused on identifying and aiding malnourished schoolchildren in Colombo, Gampaha, and Kurunegala districts. Through the ‘One Billion Meals’ program initiated by Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, they provided Rs. 9,000 worth of food packets, contributing to one of the largest humanitarian food drives spanning 50 countries worldwide.

The hallmark of the Care Lanka Initiative lies in its steadfast dedication to serving Sri Lanka through humanitarian assistance and participation in developmental initiatives, all geared towards advancing the cause of humanity.
