1 Billion Meals Campaign

Heriot-Watt University supports the UAE's goal to provide '1 Billion Meals' to those in need. We encourage our HWU Community (Staff, Students, Alumni) to donate and make a difference. We are encouraging everyone to donate a minimum of DHS 20 as part of our #twentyisplenty campaign.

About One Billion Meals

The “One Billion Meals” is the biggest humanitarian initiative of its kind in the region. It aims to secure food aid for vulnerable communities in 50 countries around the world. It will provide food support to those in need, representing a grand statement of the UAE’s aspirations in humanitarian aid and firm commitment in developing long-term solutions to improve lives across the world, without any discrimination.

The One Billion Meals campaign is an expansion of the UAE’s previous Ramadan campaigns “100 Million Meals” and “10 Million Meals”, organized under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
