Veggiebuzz to partner with Dubai Cares in support of providing children in developing countries access to quality education

Veggiebuzz.com, the UAE’s online resource for vegetarian food and dining, is proud to announce its partnership with Dubai Cares, the UAE-based global philanthropic organization. As part of its ongoing commitment to Corporate Social responsibility (CSR), Veggiebuzz will be donating AED 5 for every review posted on their website and AED 1 for every new registration on their website in an effort to raise AED 50,000 over the next 6 months.

With its online database of local restaurants as well as lifestyle related content, Veggiebuzz is trailblazing the local vegetarian food scene and raising awareness for a greener way of life. By teaming up with Dubai Cares, Veggiebuzz is offering their new members the chance to improve their own health, reduce their carbon footprint and directly improve the education of underprivileged children.

Sumati Menda, Veggiebuzz’s Founder said; “We are privileged to be part of this noble cause. Dubai Cares is playing a vital role in providing quality education to children in developing countries, and we are happy to be contributing to their efforts. We look forward to giving underprivileged children an opportunity to learn, succeed and grow.” 

Commenting on Veggiebuzz’s initiative, Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares said: “We are pleased to join hands with Veggiebuzz to bring to the UAE community a new and innovative fundraising initiative that will have a long-lasting impact in the lives of underprivileged children, their families and their communities, globally. With the continuous involvement and commitment of farsighted online organizations such as Veggiebuzz, we will continue to make successful advances in shaping the global education agenda.”

Dubai Cares, part of Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, is working towards providing children in developing countries with access to quality education through the design and funding of programs that are integrated, impactful, sustainable and scalable. With the support of the UAE community, the UAE-based global philanthropy organization has successfully launched education programs reaching over 16 million beneficiaries in 45 developing countries.
