Dubai, UAE, November 19, 2016: #Against_hunger, the enduring campaign by Fatafeat and beIN, is receiving overwhelming appreciation and participation from the masses to help thousands of unprivileged people in the Arab world. The inspiring ongoing campaign #against_hunger aims to create awareness in the Arab world regarding the alarming situation of people suffering from hunger and poverty. Fatafeat and beIN donated meals among needy families in Sudan, Egypt, Lebanon and Syrian refugees and set to reach other penurious areas.
During this journey, Fatafeat had the opportunity to meet with unprivileged and poor families in Egypt and Lebanon, to share their messages and stories of grief with the world. These stories will be shared through Fatafeat platforms and will help the world connect with the deprived people in the Arab world, to come forward and help.
The campaign activities include a coalition of students and community members across the UAE, and Qatar to end hunger in the world. Fatafeat team met with students across the region for educational sessions, to help students recognize the problems of hunger in their own community and encouraged them to take the pledge against food wastage.
“Hunger is increasing every year in the world and millions of people are starving and going to bed hungry every day,” said Fatafeat Channel Director Darine El Khatib. “This is why we are so determined to expand the reach of this wonderful initiative helping us in wiping out hunger.”
“We met with numerous families who were living a prosperous life before, but due to several circumstances they were left with no other option but to leave their homes and look for food. The current alarming situation must be known and addressed,” said Darine. “As the leading food channel, we believe it is our responsibility to find a meaningful solution such as building awareness, inspiring volunteers, and donations, to show the support for these people,” said Darine.
