The collaboration with FBRN
will also help the UAE provide food to people who are unable to work including the elderly, households with chronic diseases, single mothers and orphans, aspects fundamental to tackling a critical global problem -- societal imbalances that occur due to the uneven distribution patterns of food resources.
Dr Moez El Shohdi, CEO and founder of the FBRN
, said the food donated in the UAE will be directed to the countries in dire need.
As per the agreement, surplus food donated to the UAE Food Bank will be sent to the needy in these countries through FBRN.
The donations will be channelised through charity organisations approved by FBRN.
A non-profit organisation registered at the International Humanitarian City in Dubai in 2013, FBRN is engaged in safe packaging and transportation of donated food stuffs to partner charity organisations.
Through the FBRN
and their associations in the selected countries, each identified child will receive two glasses of milk a day for six months.
